Performance Improvement (PI) CME activities are structured, 3-stage activities through which providers learn about specific performance measures, assestheir practice(s) using the selected performance measures, implement interventions to improve their practice over an interval of time, and then reassess their practice using the same performance measures. A PI CME activity may address any structure, process or outcome of a clinician's practice with direct impact on patient care.
90-Day plans focus on high priority clinical performance gaps at OHSU. Hospital and Quality Management resources provide structure and data for these performance gaps. The 90-Day Plan team analyzes data, and develops and implements intervention(s) on a rapid PDSA cycle.
Learners must complete all three stages (A, B & C) in order to receive credit for participating.
By the end of this activity the participants will have:
- Gained experience in quality improvement methods
- Analyzed institutional performance measures
- Designed and implemented targeted interventions to improve clinical performance
