Global Quality Improvement Committee (GQIC)

The Trillium Global Quality Improvement Committee (GQIC) serves as a fair impartial committee representing the Provider Network. The GQIC discuss and explore an open forum of ideas related to Quality Improvement issues among the provider network, in order to maintain and achieve best practices to enable the providers to help the members reach the goals.  

Blinded Peer Reviews - Trillium’s Global Quality Improvement Committee offers the option for providers to request a review of their Quality Improvement Projects (QIP’s) through a blinded peer review.  As part of the review process, the committee will provide feedback regarding the projects.  Prior to the review, Trillium staff will remove all identifying provider information to ensure the committee does not know who the provider is and to enable the committee to review the QIP’s impartially.  For any providers wishing to participate in the blinded peer review, please contact the Performance Improvement Manager at
