Patient Safety And Quality Improvement Evaluation

Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Evaluation

 A health care organization may have highly qualified doctors and nurses who meet quality indicators for technical quality; however, due to a lack of communication, empathy, and scheduled office hours, patient satisfaction is low. In the corporate world, the phrase “the customer is always right” is frequently used to emphasize the importance of meeting the needs and expectations of the consumer. How does this approach apply to health care?

Health care industries are now using quality improvement models that are very business-centric to improve the quality of care delivery, patient satisfaction, and safety. In this Discussion, you evaluate various quality improvement models and determine which model would best be applied in your practice setting to address a specific need. You also develop a mission statement for addressing the practice problem.

To prepare:

  • Reflect      on the various quality improvement models and their application in health      care presented in the Learning Resources.
  • Evaluate      the advantages and disadvantages of each model.
  • Consider      how these models have been, or could be, applied in your practice setting.
  • Based      on your selected area of need, define a practice problem and create a      corresponding mission statement.
  • Investigate      baseline data, and evaluate why this practice problem is a priority for      improvement. Ask yourself: How does this practice problem in my      organization compare to other organizations?
