This is an invitation to physician and hospital leaders who are ready to demonstrate their commitment to quality and safety, but who who are not looking to be independent trail-blazers. The collaborative process promotes mutual support, shared learning and knowledge transfer. It also lowers the effort and cost of change.
The Ideal Clinical Peer Review Process Collaborative will involve 3 half-day face-to-face sessions and 2-3 follow up conference calls. In the face-to-face sessions, participants will initiate work on program structure, policy/procedure and review forms, and make preparations for training and implementation. QA to QI will facilitate the collaborative and provide subject matter expertise along with templates and other My PREPTM tools. QA to QI will also coordinate data collection, data analysis and publication of results. Depending on sponsorship, it may be possible to obtain grant funding in support of the project.
Total costs for participation will depend on sponsorship factors, the location of the face-to-face sessions, the number of organizations, and the extent of in-kind resource contributions they might make. Participating organizations will have the option to license PREP-MSTM software at a substantial discount.
