HealthTeamWorks has been implementing quality improvement and innovation programs and training practice improvement facilitators for more than six years. We have leveraged our clinical practice transformation expertise into a practical, hands-on training program that prepares graduates to facilitate practice transformation immediately.

Our program is an intensive 3-day training session that takes place in Colorado, where HealthTeamWorks’ coaches have developed strong relationships with primary care practices developing into patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs).

Program Structure:

  • Small group, in-person training – 3 days of quality improvement (QI) Practice Facilitator intensive training sessions in Colorado with group size of 8 – 10 attendees.
  • eLearning – One-year access to HealthTeamWorks webinars and tools to support quality improvement coaches and their professional role. The webinars increase practice facilitator knowledge and coaching skills.
  • Collaborative Learning – Newly trained Practice Facilitators can to return to Colorado to attend a HealthTeamWorks Learning Collaborative that brings together members of regional practices and advanced primary care experts to share best practices. We offer 4-6 Learning Collaboratives a year, drawing more than 50 primary care practices to share their experiences in the practice transformation process. The newly trained QI coach can learn more about her/his role in planning and implementing Learning Collaboratives in his/her own organization.
