Clinical Programs Committee

The Clinical Programs Committee (CPC) held its first meeting on November 19th, 2013, and was chartered with providing guidance and recommendations to the SSCIN Governance Council related to clinical program activity of the SSCIN. The CPC began to research and evaluate SSCIN performance metrics, technology to better monitor and manage SSCIN performance, and ways to identify and share best practices.

Between November 2013 and March 2014, the CPC was instrumental in accelerating strategies for SSCIN IT, pathways and transitions of care projects. These strategies resulted in the launch of the COPD Value Stream and two Chest Pain improvement projects in early 2014.

As the SSCIN grew and evolved, so did the charter for the CPC. Today, the CPC meets every other month and is chartered with:

  • Providing guidance on active SSCIN improvement projects
  • Helping to build the “supermarket” of future SSCIN improvement work to pull from
  • Becoming leaders in the SSH&EC “lean” methodology so they can assist with spreading and continuously improving standardized clinical solutions/processes in the community
