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?)
I just took a position as the Quality Manager for an FQHC. Would love to chat if you are still here.
