Community Quality Initiatives

Statewide healthcare transformation is achieved with focused attention to improve care quality in an environment where clinical and community partnerships lend to healthier communities via a system that is affordable and sustainable over time.   

Community and Clinical Care (C3) initiatives are multi-sector groups of stakeholders implementing innovative strategies and referral processes addressing social determinants of health needs while applying sustainable population-based, community-applied interventions. 24 C3 initiatives across the state are driving transformation efforts. 

IHC provides executive leadership and delivers a broad array of resources and technical assistance including:

  • Data Analytics and Reporting
  • Quality Improvement Engagement and Execution
  • Professional Development Training and Consultation
  • Community Integration and Partner Alignment

IHC led the State Innovation Model (SIM) in Iowa, alongside the Iowa Department of Public Health and the Iowa Medicaid Enterprise, from 2015 to 2019. SIM was a Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) Center initiative focused on aligning payers in value-based purchasing (VBP) and equipping providers for service delivery transformation.

IHC is committed to continuing this work and is diligently advancing these efforts across communities throughout the state.
