Improvement Partnerships Webinar

Practices and providers often need help redesigning care systems and improving the quality of care. Developing successful quality improvement initiatives at the regional or state levels can be daunting, due to the complexity of the current health care delivery system and the range of stakeholder interests. The Vermont Child Health Improvement Program (VCHIP) is a public–private partnership that has conducted successful child health quality improvement projects on a number of topics since 1999. This “improvement partnership” is a sustainable collaboration of public and private partners that uses measurement-based efforts and a systems approach to improve the quality of health care for children. With support from The Commonwealth Fund, the improvement partnership model has now been replicated in 15 states.

We encourage you to learn more about improvement partnerships by joining us for a Commonwealth Fund webinar, “Improving Health Care Quality Through State Partnerships,” on Wednesday, September 30, 2009, at 2:00pm. Registration is available at

Also available online is a free podcast, “Help for Health Care Providers Putting Policy into Practice,” in which representatives from New Mexico, Vermont, and Ohio discuss their successful improvement partnership initiatives.
