Welcome to QIO News

For the last five years, QIO News has provided an in-depth look at health care quality improvement through the eyes of patients, thought leaders and Quality Improvement Organizations. Today, we are launching an all-new QIO News.The new QIO News will feature the same quality improvement-focused content our readers have enjoyed, in a fresh new format. Each issue will feature brief news updates, a Q&A with an influential health leader, patient stories, video clips and quality improvement success stories. This new format will be easier to read and to share, and each issue will be delivered monthly to your inbox and hosted on QIOProgram.org. We encourage you to explore and share the new QIO News. We also look forward to your feedback. If you have a question, comment or story idea, please visit our submission page.
