Welcome to the Kansas City Quality Improvement Consortium!
The Kansas City Quality Improvement Consortium (KCQIC) is a non-profit community coalition that provides a forum for collaboration to encourage best practices in health care in Kansas City. Our vision is to ensure that Kansas City residents have quality health care systems.
KCQIC was formed by the UAW-Ford Community Health Care Initiative and community stakeholders in November 2000 in response to the growing emphasis on evidence-based medicine and multiple parties involved in the development of guidelines. KCQIC received 501(c)3 non-profit status in 2005. Membership includes community stakeholders who share the same goal of quality health.
Aligning Forces for Quality connected more than 100 forward-thinking hospitals to work together to improve quality and safety of patient care. The Hospital Quality Network (HQN) supported five area hospitals in improving care and laying the groundwork to address racial and ethnic disparities. Learn about the successes of these hospitals >
