At their best, clinical core measures serve as an important window to examine the impact and quality of care being delivered at health centers. However, without an effective system in place clinical core measures can require a great deal of time and effort without yielding important quality improvement. This session will examine both short and long term strategies health centers can employ to make the best use out of the clinical core measures to improve care for patients. Drs Zuroweste and Dethlefs will examine the building blocks health centers need for an effective quality improvement system. Through a series of case studies, this session will explore the role of clinical leadership, technology and strategies for building a short and long term quality infrastructure that works.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify common pitfalls health centers encounter related to the clinical core measures.
  2. Discuss strategies for assessing a health center’s current capacity to engage in meaningful quality improvement.
  3. Through case studies, evaluate different approaches to clinical quality improvement using the clinical core measures.
