A Road Map for CIN in 2020-21

Date: 
April 8, 2020

The California Improvement Network (CIN) is a learning and action network that aims to advance the Quadruple Aim by identifying and spreading better ideas for care delivery. The network is fueled by the energy and innovations of its partner and member organizations. CIN is a project of the California Health Care Foundation and managed by Healthforce Center at UCSF. Through a collaborative design process with CIN partners over the last several months, the network has identified three priority areas for learning and action in 2020-21: 

  • Resilient Leadership with a focus on cultivating a culture of wellness, shared processes, and engaged leadership to create alignment.
  • Addressing Social Needs that Impact Health by determining which needs and populations to prioritize for specific interventions, supporting staff to effectively address these needs, partnering effectively with CBOs, and aligning with Cal-AIM.
  • Providing Care Differently through augmented and virtual reality mechanisms to support behavioral health care delivery, as well as artificial intelligence to provide alternative primary care delivery.

These priorities reflect CIN’s commitment to provide timely and useful knowledge, enabling quality improvement leaders to learn and incorporate leading-edge practices and concepts into improvement efforts. Over the coming two years, CIN will provide technical assistance programming, resources, and activities to support advancements in these areas. The CIN road map is dynamic and responsive. As the COVID-19 crisis ramps up in 2020, CIN is adapting its content and approaches to be maximally attentive to the needs of partners and members.
