Managing for Excellence Program

CQI Program

The Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) program housed in the Organizational Performance Unit was developed to build a culture of QI at ADHS. As part of our Accreditation efforts, we seek to bring Lean and waste reducing efforts to ADHS, improving our efficiency, our customer service and the quality of all we do.

ADHS was one of only five states to receive an award to participate in the National Quality Improvement (QI) Demonstration Initiative. This $100,000 grant is through the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to provide ADHS comprehensive QI technical assistance over the next 18 months.

This award is a great example of partnering with colleagues throughout the agency.
