Vicki Sprague Effland, Ph.D. has more than fifteen years of experience in program evaluation and outcomes management. Vicki is passionate about helping organizations turn data into information that can be used for decision making and quality improvement. Prior to joining AAOE, she worked as the Vice President of Quality for Choices Coordinated Care Solutions, a private, not-for-profit organization that provides care coordination to youth with behavioral health needs and their families. During her time at Choices, Vicki built an evaluation and quality department that used fiscal, clinical, and outcomes data to complete required funding reports, inform internal quality improvement activities, manage outcomes across programs located in five states, and share results through presentations, reports, and publications. Additionally, she developed a comprehensive Performance and Quality Improvement (PQI) plan that is an integral part of the agency’s Council on Accreditation (COA) certification.
