Quality Improvement: Interfaces Between Agencies and Primary Care Through County Health Improvement Organizations (CHIOs)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Session Description
There are currently 18 certified County Health Improvement Organizations (CHIOs) in Oklahoma, most of which are also identified as Turning Point Coalitions.  Many of these CHIOs have received funding to address health issues that were identified in their county’s County Health Improvement Plan through Turning Point’s MAPP (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership) process.

Panelists, representing a variety of CHIOs, will: 
  • provide examples of funded quality improvement projects;  
  • discuss how quality improvement projects in rural Oklahoma counties are linking the efforts of agencies in the community and primary care;
  • discuss how primary care became involved with the project, and
  • discuss their experiences with the CHIO, its formation, development, sustainability, and ability to affect change in the county.
