Their model, which was intended to guide future research, provides the framework for this qualitative interview tool, with a focus on the sub-headings within the Organizational Capacity and Process & Performance portions of the model. In addition, some questions focus on quality improvement activities, which reflect the decision-support needed to improve the Quality domain of Process & Performance.
