A Solid Methodology for Achieving Goals
Providing structure and leadership
A quality management committee comprises a medical director, president, operations and support service leaders, clinicians and staff. This group is dedicated to ensuring an effective quality management system and is accountable for the priorities and related activities.
Focus on care outcomes
Quality indicators, including key performance indicators for quality assurance, are established to quantitatively measure and provide information about our care’s effectiveness, safety and people-centeredness. Using data, we uncover potential gaps between performance and goals.
Measure the care we provide
Regular monitoring using a comprehensive audit tool provides insights into performance and KPIs. The audit tool includes evaluating interpersonal communication, safety, decision-making and adherence to appropriate guidelines. Quality staff audit care and services to ensure an optimal level of quality, along with measuring our associates’ strengths and weaknesses relative to objectives, performance, service-level agreements and service standards.
We have a common approach to problem-solving and quality improvement using Lean Six Sigma concepts to identify opportunities, determine root causes, create solutions, implement interventions and sustain positive changes over time. Improvement techniques are based on the PDSA (Plan Do Study Act) methodology that emphasizes innovation, testing, iterations and speed. To identify problems and analyze the current state, we also use common cause analysis, failure mode effect analysis, daily and shift huddles, briefs and debriefs.
