Welcome to the The QI Chat Room podcast. This podcast is all about quality improvement, or QI, in healthcare. We’ll bring you speakers from our member health centers, outside health centers, county and federal agencies, healthcare plans, and more. Those speakers will discuss promising practices they’ve identified at health centers, the latest data on specific health topics, and engage in conversation with our live audience. We’ve been hosting these chat rooms since late 2018. In the fall of 2019 we made the transition to podcasts to reach a greater range of listeners, including our health centers’ providers and staff that cannot make regular meeting times. We hope you’ll join us, as we share the latest in quality improvement.
All episodes of the podcast are listed individually below and also available on popular streaming services. Resources and documents related to the episodes can be found in The QI Chat Room Dropbox Folder. Promising Practice documents can be found on our Promising Practice web page (coming soon!).
If you have a topic you’d like to present or a topic you’d like to request, contact Kelly Bond. While the focus is on QI, topics can include anything related to your health center’s work. The schedule of topics for The QI Chat Room podcast can be found here.
