The following model and text sets out the key elements of what HQIP does:


Core business: Promoting QI (and related clinical governance) of health and social care through data led processes - audit, confidential enquiries etc. This is expressed through:

  • Commissioning national, regional and local programmes of this type, and activity listed below
  • Involving patients/consumers in QI - getting them involved in process and management, and as users of QI results
  • Encouraging wide use, through wide access to results, of such processes for various purposes - including accreditation, commissioning, patient choice, clinician revalidation and accountability, research etc
  • Promoting or running good governance of clinical effectiveness and QI - within providers, and at national policy level (through accreditation of providers/learning etc)
  • Promoting learning in QI (audit and broader QI and clinical governance)
  • Helping clinicians improve their practice - learning, as above; networking; promoting QI as a professional discipline, helping assess the effectiveness of clinicians (supervision, appraisal, revalidation etc); organising professional associations for groups of professionals; providing tools and systems for helping professionals in difficulty to improve; supporting professional organisations.
