Alaska PCA

The Alaska Quality Improvement Network (AQuIN), Alaska’s Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) is comprised of 16 Participating Health Centers (PHC) from across the state of Alaska and is a program of the Alaska Primary Care Association (APCA). AQuIN is advised by a Steering Committee (a committee of the APCA Board of Directors), comprised of one voting representative from each Participating Health Center. AQuIN PHCs utilize two data warehouse and analytics platform: Azara Healthcare’s DRVS, is used by 13 of the PHCs; and, three PHCs that employ the Alaska Tribal Health System’s Cerner EHR use the Health Catalyst platform. The data warehouses are query-able by APCA and PHCs Ð they return each PHC’s data in the form of reports, registries, and clinical and operational outcome data for quality improvement and population health management purposes. The overall purpose of AQuIN is quality improvement for better health outcomes, increased patient and family engagement, increased provider experience, and lower costs. APCA staff assist PHCs in using data to drive quality improvement.
