Quality Improvement Initiative

Alliant Quality is in a position to provide technical assistance to providers and practitioners to help them improve the quality of their care. As defined in 42 CFR 476.1, a Quality Improvement Initiative (QII) is any formal activity designed to serve as a catalyst and support for quality improvement that uses proven methodologies to achieve these improvements. The improvements may relate to safety, healthcare, health and value and involve providers, practitioners, beneficiaries, and/or communities. CMS has interpreted the regulatory language to include that a QII is any formal plan designed to assist a provider(s) and/or practitioner(s) in identifying the root cause of a concern, develop a framework in which to address the concern and improve a process or system. A QII may consist of system-wide and/or non-system-wide changes and may be based on a single, confirmed concern or multiple confirmed concerns.

Alliant Quality must consider all aspects of the care reviewed when evaluating methods to improve care, and shall employ data analysis techniques to identify potential opportunities for improvement. In addition, Alliant Quality shall consider the impact of changes within, as well as across, settings. Alliant Quality may work with one, several, or all providers and/or practitioners involved to improve the level of the provider’s and/or practitioner’s performance; however, Alliant Quality may not share information among providers and/or practitioners without the specific consent of the providers and/or practitioners.

Complete the Digital Health Tools Survey

Survey Ad for Alliant Health Solutions
Alliant is working the National Center for Primary Care (NCPC) and Morehouse School of Medicine to examine the adoption and use of Digital Health Tools (DHTs) by primary care clinicians in your state.
We are prioritizing clinicians serving underserved communities in the southeast region due to the prevalent health disparities and poor health outcomes experienced by residents of these communities, with a particular focus on diabetes and maternal morbidity and mortality. As highlighted by the disparate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on minority and underserved communities, it is vital that the clinicians serving these communities have the tools and resources they need.
As such, we would like to ask for your assistance in promoting the DHTs survey to clinicians affiliated with your organization. Participants will receive a $50 gift card by completing the survey. Although the survey focuses on Primary Care physicians, this is not restrictive and other specialties are invited to participate.
