Missouri Quality Improvement Network
Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) are collaborative groups of health centers addressing operational and clinical challenges related to health information technology (HIT). The Missouri Quality Improvement Network (MOQuIN)/Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) has been an HCCN grantee funded by the United States Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) since 2010. MOQuIN supports health centers in three target areas that were prescribed by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and that align with current initiatives of health center focus:
Enhancing Patient and Provider Experience
Using Data to Enhance Value
What We Do
MOQuIN convenes peer groups for Clinical Care Teams, Electronic Health Records users, Quality Improvement and Data Leads to support the needs of our participating health centers and to offer a platform to share best practices, work on resolutions to issues and to improve patient outcomes through peer-to-peer collaboration and technology-enabled health information exchange (HIE) initiatives.
MOQuIN works with the health centers to collaborate and help facilitate new services and contracts for Health Information Technology, Analytics Platforms, and Health Information Exchange.
MOQuIN provides technical assistance and trainings on relevant initiatives, i.e. use of analytics reports, roll out of Evidence Based Care tools (guidelines, protocols and clinical decision support tools), and topic specific sessions based on the ever-changing environment.
Who We Serve
Currently, twenty-five (HCCN) MOQuIN member health centers participate in the HCCN Program.
