- Improve behavioral health outcomes, including a focus on decreased opioid misuse.
- Focus on patient safety and reducing all-cause harm including medication documentation, high-risk medications, dementia safety concerns, and antibiotic stewardship.
- Chronic disease management and prevention (cardiac and vascular health, diabetes, and kidney disease).
