What are the health care areas most important for practices providing care to Alabama’s children and adolescents to improve in the next 3-5 years?  That is the question ACHIA’s partners and guests will tackle at the Alabama Q-Sort on July 27, 2016. 

Should providers improve: the number of children being seen for well child visits? asthma care? obesity prevention and treatment? adolescent depression screening? Screening for developmental delays? delivery of HPV and other vaccinations?  or perhaps some other area? 

Through a Q-Sort of Quality measures lead by the University of Alabama School of Public Health, ACHIA partners and guests will assess which of these topics have the greatest need and the greatest ability to be improved at the practice level in the next few years.  The results will be reported out in Fall 2016 and will provide the foundation for ACHIA to marshall resources to support practices around the state as they tackle continuous quality improvement.
