Using Quality Improvement Tools to Uncover the Root Causes of Health System Issues. Year Developed: 2015. Source: Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs. Presenter(s): Amanda Cornett, MPH; Donna Lindemulder, MA; Kori Flower, MD, MPH; Pat Bailey, LMSW. Type: Video. Level: Intermediate. Length: 78 minutes.

Annotation: This interactive skill building session introduces quality improvement tools (e.g. Fishbone, 5 Whys) that can assist states in conducting root cause analysis related to health reform within their state. The session offers state‐specific examples and provide participants an opportunity to apply the tools. The Affordable Care Act offers opportunities to improve public health and health care delivery systems, and ultimately health outcomes for MCH populations. Title V programs are in a position to help lead efforts to implement health system reforms that result in improvement. Success in leading change will require new skills and strategies aimed at collaborating with multidisciplinary partners to address the underlying system issues that negatively impact health.

Life of a Benchmark or Benchmarks for Real Life. Year Developed: 2013. Source: Northwest Center for Public Health Practice. Presenter(s): Kathleen Anger, PhD. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Introductory. Length: 58 minutes.

Annotation: State and tribal Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) programs are required to measure program processes and participant outcomes for 35 constructs categorized into six benchmark topic areas. Programs must show improvement in at least 50% of the construct measures within at least four of the benchmark areas. This webinar examines lessons learned from Oregon’s MIECHV experience and principles that can be used for selection and use of performance measures. By stepping through the entire process from measure selection and definition, through data collection and analysis, and interpretation and use of measures in continuous quality improvement (CQI), the webinar illustrates the interconnection of the steps in the process, intended and unintended consequences of each step, and the balance between data goals and program goals.

Learning Objectives: • Describe at least 3 examples of how decisions made at one stage of designing and using performance measures can affect quality and efficiency at other stages. • State at least 3 actions to take or to avoid when designing performance measures, data collection processes, and continuous quality improvement programs (CQI).
