Hi Flex Coordinators,
It’s September which means we are in the middle of Performance Improvement and Measurement System (PIMS) reporting. Thank you to everyone who has been working to fill in the data for your report. Please read the FY 2018 PIMS Reporting Instructions to make sure we are all collecting PIMS data in the same way. And please keep reaching out to your project officer when you have questions.
Some people (including me) have experienced frustratingly slow page load times in PIMS—up to multiple minutes per page. If you encounter long load times, please send me an email with the date and time, what page you were trying to access, what browser you were using, and a description or screenshot of the problem. Your direct user reports will help me explain our system problems to the IT developers.
As you’ve probably heard, Yvonne Chow, our MBQIP Coordinator, and fellow Flex project officer has left the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). We will miss her knowledge and enthusiasm! We will be bringing on a new MBQIP Coordinator. In the meantime, I will be covering MBQIP issues with the expert help of the Rural Quality Improvement Technical Assistance (RQITA) team at Stratis Health. Please continue reaching out to your project officer and to firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and challenges related to MBQIP, and we will all work together to find answers.
Happy Fall! Enjoy the changing season whether you’ve already seen snow up north or are just noticing shorter, but still warm, days down south.
Flex Program Coordinator
