Author: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)

This Resource Guide is a publication for State agencies and policymakers, as well as other stakeholders, interested in implementing a State-level quality improvement collaborative that addresses a specific clinical concern. A quality improvement collaborative usually consists of policy leaders and health stakeholders working toward a common goal of improving performance on a well-defined quality measure or set of measures. The core components of a quality improvement collaborative, including the importance of collaborative learning and making policy decisions based on evidence and sound data, are outlined in this guide and illustrated by examples from the Medicaid Network for Evidence-based Treatment (MEDNET).
