QI team documentation journals

Improvement teams need to have a record of what they have tried, both successfully and unsuccessfully, to test change ideas to improve care.  In its simplest form, this documentation may be notations on a time series chart.  Team notes are another simple way of keeping track of what has been tried. Documentation tools also help improvement teams communicate their results to others, including coaches, site managers, and other improvement teams.  This section provides examples of documentation tools for site-level improvement teams.
