NICHQ's breadth of services leads to innovative and idealized solutions

NICHQ is ready to help your organization advance its improvement agenda through innovative approaches and practical solutions. NICHQ can:

Lead Large Scale Improvement Initiatives

NICHQ has a lengthy track record of successfully leading large-scale improvement initiatives at a national, state or system level on many topics related to children’s health. These efforts can focus on targeted improvements (e.g., improving maternity care services in hospitals), broad-sweeping change (e.g., medical home transformation), or clinical improvements (e.g., improving care for children with Autism).

Facilitate Collaboration Across Sectors, Disciplines or Facilities

Collaboration is a core tenant of improvement science. The pace of improvement is exponentially faster when participants with a shared aim can share lessons learned. NICHQ can help by running in-person or virtual learning collaboratives, serving as the backbone organization for collective impact efforts, or developing innovation teams to pilot rapid cycle change. We also offer a cutting-edge system to engage an online community in shared learning.

Support Efficient Data Collection and Management

Over the years, NICHQ has had countless opportunities to work with frontline improvement teams to test and refine measurement strategies. Based on this experience, we have the expertise and tools to support measure creation, as well as a state-of-the-art platform for collecting, reviewing and reporting data. We can also help harvest data from existing systems and interpret data for strategic insight.

Build Quality Improvement (QI) Capacity

Any organization dedicated to continuous improvement requires internal expertise on QI methods and tools to be successful. NICHQ can offer in-person, virtual or on-demand trainings on the fundamentals of QI to empower your team to drive and understand quality improvement and system transformation.
