C. Duane Dauner Quality Award
The vision of Hospital Quality Institute (HQI) is that California hospitals will lead the nation in patient safety and quality performance with high reliability and zero defect in care on behalf of the people and communities they serve. They will lead through respect for people and a culture of habitual excellence.
HQI’s C. Duane Dauner Quality Awards recognize outstanding achievement in the area of patient safety, quality improvement and experience. Qualified submissions demonstrate successful implementation of strategies that have produced performance improvement in one or more of these three topical areas, while also addressing sustainability and scaling of the work.
