Quality Improvement Collaborative

Overview

The NNOHA Dashboard Collaborative enhances the quality of oral health services provided by community health centers. NNOHA uses the Institute for Healthcare Improvement Breakthrough Series Collaborative methodology to train health center oral health programs in the Model for Improvement, to create the foundation for monitoring, reporting and improving on a specific set of dashboard measures that includes the HRSA sealant measure.

The key strategies of the NNOHA Dashboard Collaborative are:

  • Teach health center grantee dental programs Quality Improvement (QI), including small tests of change, and systems redesign for efficient care processes
  • Implement evidence-based clinical practices for dental disease prevention and management
  • Monitor change through the NNOHA Dental Dashboard

Improvement Goal

  • Sealants 6- to 9-year olds
