Summit Community Care Clinic is dedicated to Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement (QA/QI) to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible. The goal of the QA/QI program is to embed a culture of continuous quality improvement that supports the improvement of patient safety, health outcomes, and long-term organizational sustainability.

Quality Standards

We accomplish this through:

  • ●      Ensuring that each employee is trained in quality improvement methods
  • ●      Employing the Model for Improvement (PDSA: Plan-Do-Study-Act)
  • ●      Holding quarterly patient feedback meetings to engage in dialogue with our patients on their care experiences and how we can improve
  • ●      Conducting ongoing patient surveys
  • ●      Maintaining accountability to the Board of Directors 
  • ●      Holding quarterly community-based Quality Assurance Committee meetings

Summit Community Care Clinic ensures quality assurance and improvement by evaluating the care that patients receive and improving it as needed.
