Quality Improvement Clinics
The Collaborative brings together 25 clinics, situated across the US and treating more than 40,000 individuals with type 1 diabetes. The Collaborative has achieved unprecedented success because it relies on an embedded and systemic approach: individual providers are empowered to identify areas of unmet need within their clinic. They make small changes in care that scale up through the Collaborative to create best practices, which are then shared among and implemented by members at other clinics.

What Need does QIC Meet?
Most new, market-approved treatments and devices only have data about their effectiveness within the confines of a formal study; this data is insufficient to fully guide providers in a real-world setting. QIC clinics fill this gap by conducting studies and gathering information during their daily practice that can provide evidence about the effectiveness of a treatment strategy or intervention at a population level, as well as compare its performance to other strategies or interventions.
