Key Quality Improvement Topics
Below are tools and resources to help health care leaders address these critical topic areas and make change in their own organizations.
Ensuring that Californians have timely access to behavioral health treatment that is appropriately linked to their physical health care represents a huge challenge and opportunity for health leaders, providers, and care teams throughout the state.
To improve population health and manage total cost of care, medical providers must support patients, families, and communities in addressing social needs that impact health.
Payment models in California continue to evolve, with a strong trend toward moving more financial risk from purchasers and payers to provider organizations. These resources include information on the payment models in play in California and nationally, and case studies and expert advice on how to succeed in payment relationships that include financial risk.
Burnout can be defined as emotional exhaustion, interpersonal disengagement, and a low sense of personal accomplishment. A growing body of evidence shows that provider and staff burnout can negatively impact patient outcomes. Learn tools and resources to tackle this issue in your own organization.
With rising costs, increasing burnout, and a rapidly changing environment, health care leaders may feel like they’re facing an uphill battle. CIN resources help health care leaders to effectively lead change in their organizations.
