Welcome to the (MSQII-2)
Mississippi Quality Improvement Initiative II
The MSQII-2 is a quality improvement initiative that was established in 2013 by the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH), Office of Preventive Health – Chronic Disease Bureau. It was designed to support healthcare systems accelerate quality improvement by learning and sharing from each others’ successes and challenges. MSQII-2 initial focus was on improving high blood pressure control, decreasing coronary artery disease and diabetes mellitus among adults and older adults.
Since its inauguration, the Office of Preventive Health and Health Equity – Chronic Disease Bureau rebranded its quality improvement initiative and introduced it as the Chronic Disease Quality Improvement Initiative (CDQII). CDQII was designed to support participating healthcare organizations improve high blood pressure control and decreasing coronary artery disease and diabetes mellitus among adults and older adults.CDQII uses community health workers to assist in this process by being a part of the clinical team at the participating healthcare organizations.
In 2018, the MSDH Office of Child Health, Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) Program initiated a learning collaborative entitled, “CYSHCN Cares 2.” It was designed to ensure that children and youth with special healthcare needs are receiving care in a family-centered, comprehensive, and coordinated system of care.
Both quality improvement initiatives, CDQII and CYSHCN Cares 2 require changing the way healthcare is delivered. The fundamental change is from a provider-oriented system to a patient-family-community-oriented system of care utilizing a team-based approach.
