Quality Improvement Initiatives:
In 2007, under the leadership of Kurt Elward, MD, MPH, the Foundation created TO GOAL: Together Obtaining Guidelines Optimization, Adherence and Lifestyles™, a physician-driven approach to clinical care quality improvement. This model for improvement optimizes the Maintenance of Certification process for primary care physicians by implementing an integrated practice team approach that addresses: system redesign, patient adherence, EMR optimization, and ancillary staff engagement while focusing on improving patient care for a particular chronic disease. To date, the Foundation has successfully implemented (4) TO GOAL™ programs and engaged over 200 physicians using this model: TO GOAL™: Cardiovascular Disease, IMPACT: Improving Asthma Care and Treatment™, IMPACT™ Pediatrics, and TO GOAL™: COPD. We are currently in the process of launching TO GOAL™: Diabetes.
