QUALITY IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
Quality Improvement in behavioral health care has become a goal and interest to
many of you. The white paper below provides a summary of several current
quality improvement programs and suggests a quality measurement framework
that can be implemented to improve care access and outcomes for individuals
with behavioral health needs.
VRG wants to support your efforts in quality improvement where possible. If you have an idea or are planning a project with regards to quality improvement in mental health care at your agency and could use assistance, let us know!

health care resources for all and may start interacting with you on one of our upcoming projects in the area of regulatory and data support.
