PHiiT’s projects are based on an Enhanced Medical Education format. State topic experts present the science in short, well-organized presentations that include a small number of high-value process changes for your practice to implement. Each practice collects a baseline data set and ongoing quarterly data to track progress over the course of the 12-month project. The goal is to demonstrate the successful short-term impact of process improvements. This impact can then be compared with costs incurred to provide a value assessment for further investment of each practice to sustain these process changes and develop future process improvement.
Each PHiiT project includes
- Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV Credit
- Enhanced Online Medical Education approved for CME
- Quality Improvement Training
- Metrics that are of high value to ambulatory pediatric care
- QI Teamspace -a user friendly data collection system specifically designed for quality improvement efforts
- Personalized reports of your practice’s progress
- PHiiT QI Team and Individual Practice Support
Quality Improvement Training
This training will serve as a supplement to all PHiiT projects. "Quality Improvement 101 – Small Amplitude, High Frequency Improvement Cycles" – This talk by Francis Rushton is highly insightful to the biggest challenge to practice improvement: taking too big of a bite from your problem. As providers, we sometimes have magical thinking about how quickly we can impact change in our practice. This video will set the groundwork for more effective and persistent change.
