Boehringer Ingelheim is proud to support Quality
Improvement Education grants examining educational methodologies and approaches that address
clinical performance measures or quality indicators aligned to National Quality Priorities.
Specific QIE initiatives will focus on demonstrating improvement of patient care within health care
organizations and will disseminate the impact of specific QIE initiatives via publications or
real-world data reporting.
Types of QIE Initiatives
QIE initiatives include interventions designed independent of Boehringer Ingelheim’s input or
involvement and may or
may not include education that is certified for healthcare professionals. For those initiatives that
do provide a form of certified education (CE), Boehringer Ingelheim cannot provide any resources or
the development or execution of the educational interventions to ensure that the Independent Medical
Education (IME) component remains free from Boehringer Ingelheim influence.
Boehringer Ingelheim also provides support for collaborative QIE opportunities where Boehringer
Ingelheim may partner with an
outside professional or medical association or society. Involvement may include dissemination of a
Boehringer Ingelheim Request for Proposal to their members and/or assembling a final external review
