E-QUAL 2019 Wrap Up!

The Emergency Quality Network ended the year with engaging over 1,000 EDs nationwide in the learning collaboratives. Across all E-QUAL collaboratives over 2,500 Improvement Activity credits were earned for the CMS Quality Payment Program for 2019.

Top five IAs earned

  1. Use of decision support and standardized treatment protocols
  2. Measurement and improvement at the practice and panel level
  3. Implementation of formal QI methods or practice improvement processes
  4. Leadership Engagement in practice improvement
  5. Engage patients and families in a system of care

To celebrate success, the E-QUAL Network developed the E-QUAL Honor Roll to recognize emergency departments which have completed participation in an E-QUAL learning collaborative for exceptional performance. Over 100 ED sites made the 2019 E-QUAL Honor Roll. Visit the E-QUAL Honor Roll page to see the recently awarded 2019 sites!
