California Improvement Network
CIN is a community where you can learn better ideas for care delivery through webinars, workshops, and quarterly meetings focused on techniques to improve the patient experience and the health of populations, while lowering the cost of health care.

Need to get up to speed quickly on a topic? We've compiled key resources in three areas where CHCF has supported work over time to provide a knowledge base:
Hear from those who have implemented successful programs. CIN webinars, held the fourth Wednesday of each month, feature innovations in care delivery and "how to" advice for adopting them.
CIN in-person workshops are recurring one- or two-day seminars that cover the fundamentals of quality improvement methodology.
CIN partner organizations meet quarterly to share ideas and lessons from their work. Read about their top priorities and how they are responding to new demands in the health care environment.
These micro networks connect organizations to explore and experiment with new ideas in care delivery and to put them into practice. Check here often to learn about new action groups as they form.
Health centers who bought electronic health records (EHRs) with grant funds from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recently reported difficulties using basic data-sharing capabilities of their EHRs and expressed concerns about the ongoing operational and maintenance costs of their systems.
"To be successful at whole-person care, organizations need to be creative in developing programs that address upstream social determinants of health."
