The provider’s Board and staff collaborate with educational partners, including rural hospitals , clinics, and independent physician offices in the region, as well as national organizations, to obtain and use information from their quality improvement and quality assurance departments to identify practice issues that become the basis for CME designed to disseminate research findings that support evidence-based practices related, for example, to the implementation of electronic health records systems, HIPAA education, and tobacco cessation. In addition, the provider sponsors a performance improvement project in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease for rural primary care providers, offering an expert consult for physician participants to address difficult cases in the care of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other specific case questions related to their practice.
