A performance improvement project (PIP), required of health plans providing services under Medicaid, is a systematic process for assessing and improving the quality and outcome of care using measurable tools. PIPs require the plan to identify a specific issue or problem and monitor the improvement by gathering information about organizational processes, provider practices, and patient outcomes. Acumentra Health helps health plans implement interventions to improve access, timeliness, or quality of care.
