The Vermont Program for Quality in Health Care is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization designated by the Vermont Legislature in 1988 as an independent, non-regulatory, peer review committee. Our organization brings together the entire spectrum of health care voices to focus on quality analysis and improvement.

Our Mission

We improve health care quality in Vermont by studying the system and making it work better:

  • We serve as a reliable source for data collection and analysis on health care quality.
  • We establish appropriate and effective standards and measurement tools for quality of care.
  • We educate health care providers on quality improvement. 
  • We inform consumers and make recommendations to policymakers on issues of health care quality.
