Toolkit for Clinical Quality Metric Extraction

The Toolkit for Clinical Quality Metric Extraction was created by the Healthy Hearts Northwest project as a guide for practice facilitators and primary care clinic staff in using health information technology to support quality improvement. Current as of April 2019, this toolkit was created to be used as a step-by-step guide for quality improvement reporting for any Clinical Quality Measure (CQM).  Topics include:

Building quality improvement capacity in primary care: 16 key insights about practice facilitation

Building quality improvement capacity in primary care: 16 key insights about practice facilitation may be helpful for those interested in how we can keep rural health care providers working in the communities they live in and care about.  Over the course of four years, our Healthy Hearts NW intervention touched over 200 clinics across WA, OR, and Idaho - many of them small, independent, and rural.

Primary Care Evidence Review Toolkit

The purpose of the Primary Care Evidence Review Toolkit is to share our methods for evidence screening, drawing on implementation science theory and methods. We also include links to several additional resources that can be used as companion materials to our tools by other evidence review and translation efforts.

Implementing the CCM in Academic Environments

The materials in this toolkit were created for two collaboratives designed to help implement the Chronic Care Model in academic health care settings:  one nationally, the other focused on California-based institutions.
