About the Office of Quality

The plan to create the IHS Office of Quality was developed in consultation with the Tribes served by IHS in response to challenges in delivering quality health care in Indian Country.

We aim to strengthen the agency’s ongoing efforts to ensure the delivery of high-quality health care at federally operated facilities serving American Indian and Alaska Native people.

Four Quality Divisions

The Office of Quality is organized into four Divisions:

Quality Portal

The IHS Quality Portal provides a collaborative learning environment to support quality improvement and Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) education and resource sharing. The Quality Portal is a password-protected area where staff from IHS, Tribal and Urban Indian Organizations (I/T/U) facilities can share Quality Improvement (QI) resources and event listings, consult with subject matter experts and discuss QI questions and pathways to PCMH recognition.
