QI in the hospital vs. FQHC

  1. Hello,

    I am a QI coordinator at a FQHC in Northern California. Currently studying to take the CPHQ. I would like to know what some of the duties/differences of those working in a hospital QI department are compared to QI in the FQHC world. Also, is there generally flexibility to move around/up departments?

    (I know that in the hospital, a great deal of QI is centered around JACHO, but beyond that?)

    Thank you!
