Who We Are
The Quality Collaborative is a physician-led, patient-centered performance improvement program whose purpose is to:

  • integrate quality initiatives across the continuum of care
  • accelerate the implementation of advanced clinical technologies
  • reduce underuse, overuse, and misuse of clinical resources

We follow the standards for measure selection as recommended by major medical
associations, and accreditation bodies, such as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, National Quality Forum, Joint Commission, National Committee for Quality Assurance and other sources.

Each of our clinical initiatives is:

  • Objective: quantifiably measurable, evidence based, credible, and defensible
  • Comparable: representative across all providers within specialty
  • Statistically Reliable: risk adjusted, sufficient sample size and reproducible
  • Controllable: within scope of physician responsibility
  • Important: measures what is important, in accordance with the shared clinical vision
  • Valid: strongly correlated with the effect it is measuring
  • Clinically Relevant: targets provider, specialty, disease state, or population
  • Actionable: provides valuable feedback at a useful frequency on a timely basis
  • Low Data Collection Burden: realistic administrative impact for physicians, practices and the system
