The PA PQC’s $5,000 Quality Improvement Awards will be awarded quarterly in 2023 to PA PQC healthcare teams who complete all the milestones listed below for a 2023 initiative until the available funding levels are reached for each quarter (the awards are also contingent on available funding).
The applications will be reviewed when a PA PQC healthcare team submits documentation to verify completion of Milestone 5 listed below.
If the number of PA PQC healthcare teams that achieved the milestones for a particular quarter exceeds the number of available awards for that quarter, the Quality Improvement Awards will be awarded chronologically based on the date and time when the PA PQC healthcare team submits the materials for Milestone 5.
The purpose of the awards is to recognize and support efforts to further build the PA PQC healthcare team’s infrastructure for collecting and submitting data and for implementing a PA PQC quality improvement project for a PA PQC 2023 initiative.
Birth hospitals are eligible for these Quality Improvement Awards if they:
• join a PA PQC 2023 initiative by completing the step in the “How to Get Involved” section, AND
• stay engaged in the PA PQC by meeting the minimum set of criteria listed in the Expectations section during the Implementation Period.
