What Can You Find On CLIC?

There are three main components to CLIC:

Virtual, on demand courses comprised of short (3–5 minutes) video and written learning modules for topics such as quality improvement and patient safety, infection prevention, opioid stewardship, and clinical performance feedback/data strategies.

Tools, resources, and video instruction for use by health care improvement teams that connect to the drivers for improvement in the HQIC patient safety focus areas, such as adverse drug events, sepsis, pressure injuries, readmissions, and hospital-acquired infections, as well as Discovery Tools for each of the clinical topic areas.

Online collaborative forums, called “Communities,” where health care team members and subject matter experts can share tools, best practices, and ask questions and advice from their peers. We currently have Communities for COVID-19 response, Patient and Family Engagement, and the HQIC Patient Safety Topic Areas. You are encouraged to log into the Communities and post resources or questions at any time.

The CYNOSURE HQIC Philosophy & Methodology

Our mission is to improve health care quality and safety, and partner with hospitals, patients, and families to create better health outcomes.

CYNOSURE HQIC Assistance Umbrella

Using our umbrella of assistance, Cynosure HQIC team will partner with you to drive improvement by leveraging multiple types of support.

Hospitals in Cynosure HQIC have varied resources, experience, and bandwidth for quality improvement activities. That’s why Cynosure HQIC has designed our systems of support with a variety of different types of assistance.

In response to years of requests to consolidate and simplify data submission, MT Flex and HQIC may have found a solution. The Quality Health Indicators (QHi) platform is a service of the Kansas Hospital Education and Research Foundation.  It is a comprehensive online platform that allows for submission of a variety of data AND provides users with the ability to run their individual reports.
