This 4-month blended online learning program supports the unique training and staff development needs of CHCs to build the fundamental skills and infrastructure necessary to adapt and position themselves for current and future value-based care delivery and payment models. QI+ will engage participants in self-paced learning modules complemented by virtual group learning, applied project-based learning, and group technical assistance calls to support project-based learning.
Subject matter expertise is provided by Community Health Solutions (CHS), whose mission is to support community innovation for health improvement. Since 2011, CHS has specialized in supporting collaborative projects where people from multiple organizations within the public health sector work together to learn and implement effective practices.
