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.

Medication-Focused CQI Model
The Medication-Focused CQI Model 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.
