Health Quality Innovators (HQI) is part of the consortium called Heart of Virginia Healthcare, which is one of seven regional cooperatives taking part in the AHRQ initiative. The collaborative supports the broad U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) effort for better care, smarter spending, and healthier people, and is aligned with the HHS’ Million Hearts® national initiative to prevent heart attacks and strokes.

For its part in the Heart of Virginia Healthcare initiative HQI provides program management, practice coaching, and evaluation expertise. The HQI team serves as practice facilitators to build providers’ capacity for care improvement and their ability to adopt evidence-based patient care practices.
