After a QRIS pilot project of nearly four years in the state’s largest county, North Dakota is working toward statewide implementation of Bright & Early, the state’s four step system of quality improvement. By January 2015, Bright & Early will be available to a limited number of providers in all N.D Counties at steps 1 and 2. Bright & Early involves a number of supports for participants, including a quality improvement guide, access to a personal coach, grant dollars and bonus awards, and recognition for a job well done.
