HRSA recognizes the need for a toolkit of objective educational tools and resources to assist an organization in its quality improvement (QI) efforts. The HRSA Quality Toolkit is equipped with proven strategies and techniques to effectively support an organization's new or existing QI program. The toolkit's wide range of practical, convenient, and useful tools are used for implementing data collection and performance measurement techniques, and the organizations that integrated their use into QI programs effectively improved their deliveries of care. These resources are adaptable and may be used to facilitate the implementation of a new QI program or fine tune an existing one. More>>
