Increasing Quality Improvement Project Submissions


Impact Statement: 
Oneida County Health Department’s (OCHD’s) QI team increased QI project submissions from staff, thus strengthening ongoing performance improvement in the agency.

For OCHD, QI has been a priority since 2010. With changes in staffing, various other priorities, and the daily grind, agency leadership discovered that staff were proposing few new QI projects. The agency QI team itself was tasked with increasing the number of QI project proposals. Before the QI project, there were six submissions in January through June 2015. By September 30, just 3 months later, there were 15 submissions, a 250% increase.

Organization that conducted the QI initiative:
