"Evaluate the Impact of a Quality Improvement Exchange on Outcomes and Collaboration within Missouri Diabetes Prevention and Control Programs"

This project supported a 12-month proof of concept, quasi-experimental feasibility study to open access to Gateway to Quality (G2Q),web-based portal to 3-5 FQHC diabetes programs to evaluate the feasibility of future adoption by all Missouri FQHCs. This project had two major aims: 1) to engage and promote diabetes program staff to adopt and use the quality improvement Gateway to Quality software and 2) to evaluate outcomes of G2Q usage and performance.
