CPHQ Certification Preparation Program
The North Carolina Healthcare Foundation (NCHF) has launched an innovative pilot program designed to support quality professionals in attaining the Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ) designation. The CPHQ Certification Preparation Program or CCPP, is a 9-month program that includes 1:1 and group coaching, targeted workshops, access to NAHQ online CPHQ study materials and IHI Open School Courses. The CCPP is based on the NAHQ Healthcare Quality Competency Framework. Upon completion of the preparation program, participants will sit for the CPHQ exam in May 2021. The program is conducted under the umbrella of The Quality Center Patient Safety Organization (PSO). This unique approach provides protection to all materials that are shared and allows for open discussion about events and other confidential topics in a protected setting as well as allows participants to learn more about the purposes and functions of PSOs as part of the program.
The pilot cohort is comprised of 11 quality professionals from critical access and small rural hospitals across North Carolina. The goal of CCPP is that every participating facility will have at least one CPHQ-certified quality professional prepared to train others and execute a value-driven quality program. NCHF will report program outcomes after analysis of the pilot cohort is complete.
