Process Improvement in Behavioral Health 

The Great Lakes ATTC provides training and technical assistance in use of the NIATx model of process improvement.

The NIATx model is based on the conviction that what inhibits many organizations from delivering quality care isn't resources or staff—it's problematic processes in the work system. In the NIATx model, an organization sets out a goal for improvement, and then examines its internal processes to determine how they might be changed to make that goal a reality.

The model is simple, streamlined, and adaptable by organizations of all sizes.
