Abstract

Background: Partnerships contributed to the success of three diverse health care quality improvement (QI) projects. The Partnerships for Quality (PFQ) Dissemination Planning Tool was used to identify the most appropriate partners to disseminate the QI interventions for three projects, that is, partners most likely to reach and influence the target user(s) - (1) the Catholic Heakhcare Partners Heart Failure Partnership, a multisite demonstration of the efficacy of a collaborative approach in the management of heart failure, (2) the Center for Value Purchasing, a collaborative study of the effects of quality incentives on the delivery of chronic disease care, and (3) the New York State Information Dissemination project, a collaborative partnership that targeted dissemination of evidence-based practices in the long term care setting. Results: The RE-AIM model, a construct to aid planning, implementation, and evaluation of health behavior interventions, was used as a framework to examine the impact of partnerships on the three collaborative projects. Discussion: When carefully selected and nurtured, partnerships can substantially facilitate the dissemination and impact of quality improvement projects. The PFQ Dissemination Planning Tool was helpful in identifying and developing strategies for working with partners who could facilitate dissemination of promising practices. The RE-AIM model was a useful framework for examining the impact of the partnerships on the QI projects.
