Welcome to the HIV/STD/Viral Hepatitis Division’s (HSVHD) Clinical Quality Management (CQM) page where you will find a repository of resources, training material, and program information including quality improvement (QI) activities. The purpose of this page is for HSVHD to share timely information that promotes stakeholder engagement in the statewide CQM program.
Statewide QI Projects
ISDH has produced the Community Health Improvement Initiative (CHII) as its landmark statewide QI Project. Service populations of focus and related topics are generated as a set curriculum and set of associated activities for subrecipient organizations identified for participation based on their organizational service populations. You will find details on CHII capstone projects over time in the table below.

Framework for Quality Management
Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) uses the RWHAP framework for QM seen to the right as the basis for its overall Division-wide QM framework. The Infrastructure for the QM program is rooted in the Division Clinical Quality Management Plan and the Indiana HIV, STD, and Viral Hepatitis Quality Management Committee described below.

Division Clinical Quality Management Plan
The ISDH HSVHD uses a Division-wide approach to QM. The HSVHD Clinical Quality Management Plan (CQM Plan) provides a statewide framework for QM activities in Indiana. The CQM Plan includes detailed information on the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders in the overall statewide QM Program. In addition, the CQM Plan includes the breakdown of quality performance measures by Division Program and provides the background on ISDH’s overall approach to QI.

Indiana HIV, STD, and Viral Hepatitis QM Committee
Indiana’s HIV, STD, and Viral Hepatitis QM Committee (QM Committee) is a subcommittee of the Indiana HIV/STD Advisory Council (Advisory Council). Membership on the QM Committee is drawn from providers and consumers that represent all funded programs of the Division. Committee members represent diversity in geography, gender, and race. As a subcommittee of the broader Advisory Council, the work of the QM Committee is overseen by the Advisory Council in which all Division sub-recipients of funding are required to participate.
ISDH HSVHD Internal QM Committee
The ISDH Internal QM Committee is made up of representatives of all Division’s Programs and led by CQM staff. The purpose of the internal committee is to align CQM activities and expectations with other Division priorities. The goal is for the Division to communicate expectations in one voice and avoid over-burdening subrecipient agencies with overlapping or contradicting expectations.
