Quality Improvement Committees
The Clinical Leadership is comprised of each clinical center PI from the Quality Improvement Collaborative. The Committee informs the strategic direction, study or intervention design, dissemination plan and assists in identifying new opportunities for T1D Exchange and contributes to the understanding, treatment and other solutions effecting people with type 1 diabetes.
The Data Governance Committee (DGC) reviews data requests from researchers and grant teams for data collected from the Quality Improvement Collaborative (T1DX-QI) and provides impartial recommendations for approving or denying these requests. The DGC is made up of members from the T1D Exchange and its clinical partners. Many expert sources are leveraged in their decisions, including the analytics team, to ensure that T1DX-QI data is used for valuable and effective purposes consistent with T1D Exchange’s mission.
The Data Science committee is comprised of multidisciplinary members from clinical centers participating in the QI Collaborative. They strive for balance between regulatory compliance, fiscal responsibility, and system quality to promote the sustainability of population health management tools and resources accessible to the T1DX-QI.
The Publications Committee is responsible for conducting reviews of publication proposals, following the guidance of T1DX-QI’s publication policy, providing advice on statistical methods, and contributing to discussions on best practices regarding T1DX-QI topic areas. Committee members are encouraged to review, write, solicit, and submit articles and abstracts for publication.
The Quality Improvement Patient/Parent Advisory (PPAC) Committee includes representation of people living with type 1 diabetes and their families. PPAC members have long-standing relationships in the national T1D space, and many are part of our T1DX-QI medical teams. They offer expertise on diabetes management, share insights on living with type 1 diabetes in the real world, and help hospitals engineer a person-centered approach to care.
The QI Champion’s Committee is comprised of coordinators from across T1DX-QI centers. The Committee meets to share and discuss QI tools, methodologies, and best practices to improve clinic processes, workflows, and patient outcomes.
