Project Tools

The Office of Mental Health has collaborated with administrators, clinicians, and Quality Improvement (QI) experts to develop a number of project tools that can be used to support QI projects.  This page lists a number of tools that may be of general interest. Please visit the Project Tools pages for Freestanding Clinics and Hospital Clinics for information about materials developed specifically for those initiatives.

Medication-Focused CQI Model
The Medication-Focused CQI Model (58kb) is organized using the FOCUS-Plan-Do-Check-Act quality improvement model. QI teams can use the Medication-Focused CQI Model as a roadmap for implementing medication-related QI projects.

CQI Handbook
Written for freestanding clinics participating in the PSYCKES-CQI Initiative, the CQI Handbook also serves as a general resource for information about medication-focused quality improvement.  The CQI Handbook provides an overview of the FOCUS-Plan-Do-Check-Act model, demonstrates how to implement a medication-focused quality improvement project, and includes strategies for stakeholder engagement.

Action Plan
The Action Plan RTF Document (81kb) |  (52kb) is a template that QI teams can adapt for use in the Plan phase of a Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.

Chart Review Forms
QI teams interested in expanding medication-focused QI projects beyond Medicaid enrollees can use the Chart Review Forms to identify consumers whose medication regimens may benefit from a clinical review.

Clinical Note
The Clinical Note was designed to promote communication between QI teams and prescribers.  It is a one-page document in a check‐box format that documents the quality concerns associated with a particular medication regimen, the decision to change or not change the medication, and recommended follow-up strategies.
