Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement Strategy (Quality Strategy)


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Policies and Programs

~~“Quality Initiatives and Emerging Practices Emerging practices occur by incorporating evidence-based guidelines into operational structures, policies, and procedures. Emerging practices are born out of continual quality improvement efforts to enhance a service, health outcome, systems process, or operational procedure. The goals of these efforts are to improve the quality of and access to services. Only through continual measurement and analyses to determine the efficacy of an intervention may an emerging practice be identified. Therefore, the DHCFP encourages MCEs to continually track and monitor efficacy of quality improvement initiatives and interventions to determine if the benefit of the intervention outweighs effort and cost.”
