A Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization

Implementing data-driven initiatives to improve healthcare quality


What We Do

Great Plains QIN works with healthcare providers and communities to implement data-driven quality initiatives to improve healthcare. We offer technical assistance, tailored education, best practices, tools and resources. Through these efforts, we intend to improve patient safety, reduce harm and improve clinical care at the local and regional levels.

The alliance with Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota also offers greater opportunities to collaborate with and learn from providers across state lines while maintaining access to local resources.
