last modified 11/20/2015 - 03:20 PM


The Department of Vermont Health Access (DVHA) is required to run a program of formal and informal performance improvement projects (PIPs). The goal of these PIPs is to make improvements over time on a chosen topic.
PIPs include:
·         Using indicators to measure how we are doing;
·         Making changes meant to lead to improvement;
·         Studying whether the changes worked;
·         Planning activities to increase or sustain improvement.
