Iowa Healthcare Collaborative

IHC Toolkits

The work and activity of the Iowa Healthcare Collaborative revolves around three core values. One of these is to align and equip healthcare providers on quality and value. IHC produces web-based topical toolkits to address this effort.  Toolkits are distributed to all participating hospitals and made publicly available online.  Updated and expanded toolkits will be posted annually.  Do you have an idea for an additional toolkit topic? If so, please email Ellyn Cowan to submit your suggestion.

Best Practice Toolkits:

  1. Influenza Immunizations - Hospitals
  2. Influenza Immunizations - Long Term Care and Ambulatory Surgical Centers
  3. Lean in Healthcare
  4. Obesity
  5. Tobacco Cessation
  6. Patient Safety
