Quality Quarterly Article

“Quality is not an act; it is a habit.” – Aristotle 

As patient safety and quality improvement professionals, you understand those words better than most. The work you do isn’t defined by a sales metric or accomplishment of a task, but rather by incremental improvement — your journey from providing good patient care to great patient care. 

Your work provides value to our entire health care system, and it’s bigger than any one person, hospital, or even system. That’s why your Hospital Quality Institute has developed a critical tool to support you: the Hospital Quality Improvement Platform. Designed to help you identify challenge areas and trends to improve performance, this analytics platform is our most dynamic resource yet. The platform takes data you already report at the state and federal levels and makes it easy for you to track your progress and identify areas of opportunity. 

The early feedback from those who have seen customized demos? Outstanding. Our tool gives you something you can’t find anywhere else — the ability to see how you stack up against your peers. Combine that with insights from our analytics team, and you’re on a great path toward driving future improvement. Our platform can even help you spot challenges in real time — meaning that you can fix the problem before it impacts your quality ratings. 

Want to be a part of this great work? Visit our website or shoot me an email. Quality improvement is a team sport, and we’re certainly happy to have you on ours.
