QI Academy

Strengthen your team’s quality improvement skills with CMQCC’s QI ACADEMY!

The QI Academy is designed to help hospitals build a multidisciplinary maternal QI team that fosters sustainable change and enhances professional experience.

QI Academy is a dynamic learning environment for participating hospitals to receive mentorship in enhancing their perinatal QI team’s skills. The year-long educational initiative focuses on application of evidence-based QI techniques to a hospital-specific project, giving participants the opportunity to apply learning and demonstrate leadership. Hospitals select a maternal QI project that is focused on one of CMQCC’s toolkits or the implementation of a national AIM bundle. The project must have identified data metrics that can be trended over the course of the year.

The first cohort of hospitals began in August 2018, and a second began in February 2019. New cohorts are planned to begin approximately every 6 months, and each cohort runs for a year. CMQCC will support the teams on monthly educational learning calls. All CMQCC member hospitals are invited to apply for QI Academy. 

Participating teams must: 

  • Include nursing and physician leadership; quality leadership is strongly encouraged
  • Pay a participation fee of $475 per hospital team.
