The MSDH Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program and its partners has established the Mississippi Quality Improvement Initiative II (MSQII-2) to improve blood pressure and diabetes control in Mississippi by helping healthcare providers use and share successful approaches to care.
The Mississippi Quality Improvement Initiative II is a systematic approach to healthcare quality improvement that promotes team-based care and maximizes the use of electronic health records to address high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and diabetes mellitus among patients. Participating organizations and clinical staff test and measure innovative healthcare practices, then share their experiences to accelerate learning and the spread of successful concepts for change.
Become a Participating Healthcare Organization
Healthcare organizations can be selected for MSQII-2 by identifying a clinical team to participate in a kickoff meeting, pre-work period activities, monthly webinars, and four Learning Sessions. The MSQII-2 clinical teams submit monthly data reports, a Quarterly Senior Leader Narrative Report, and complete a quarterly Assessment of Chronic Illness Care Survey. Joining the Initiative presents an opportunity for practices to improve the outcomes of patients with diabetes, hypertension, and coronary artery disease by new techniques of coordination and care.
