Advanced Primary Care (APC) Quality Improvement Resource Compendium
To support the quality improvement efforts of primary care practices in New York’s Advanced Primary Care program, UHF’s Quality Institute has compiled this initial version of a Quality Improvement Resource Compendium. The document currently provides resources for the 13 quality measures in the first iteration of the APC Scorecard, a practice-level profile of quality measure performance for participating APC practices, to be released in fall 2017. The Quality Institute plans to expand the compendium to encompass all measures in the APC Core Measure Set.
For each of the 13 measures currently included, the compendium presents a manageable compilation of resources, developed by reliable and trusted sources and based on the synthesis of scientific evidence. A variety of tools—including narratives, fact sheets, webinars, slide presentations, courses, and social media—provide busy primary care practices with practical assistance as they seek to transform care and advance care quality.
