Maine Practice Improvement Network (MPIN)

The Maine Practice Improvement Network (MPIN) aims to cultivate, accelerate, and sustain efforts to improve clinical office practices and outcomes in Maine. MPIN was established in 2006 by physician-hospital organizations, group practices, and other organizations that support practice improvement with organizational, financial and technical support from Medical Care Development (MCD). MPIN provides educational opportunities for the QI Advisors of several large PHO’s, group practices, and primary care clinic organizations, and has developed a tool to assess the readiness of a practice to implement a chronic disease registry. MPIN provides a structure and a process for implementation of office practice redesign, promotion of shared learning, dissemination of improvement knowledge, and supports adoption of the Planned Care/Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) in practices throughout Maine. MCD received a grant from the Physicians’ Foundation for Health System Excellence for a two-year initiative to support improvements to assist practices by identifying disease management approaches and systems, support the implementation of disease registries and encourage practices to improve the quality of health care by helping patients to be more engaged in self management of their conditions.
