Your readings and lecture this week provide essential background on quality in healthcare, including the two major approaches to quality improvement. Compare and contrast the continuous quality improvement (CQI) and Six Sigma approaches to quality improvement. Which approach do you feel is best suited for measuring and improving quality in healthcare facilities, and why?….

What are some different terms frequently used for quality in health care services and what are their meanings?  What people and positions would you include on your hospital’s quality improvement committee, and why?  How does structure, process, and outcomes interact to create quality in a healthcare facility?

Working in health care management, I hear this statement a lot. ‘If it is not documented, it did not happen. How can this statement help with quality of care and in operating a facility?

In today’s world of many law suits and for educational and monitoring reasons, it is a good practice to have things documented. Does your health care facility (your workplace or personal doctor) document everything well? What kind of system do they use for patient records?

I think a good point of QA programs is to monitor and correct problems the services of an organization or department. It helps to achieve quality services and products. It is often used for certifications. One bad thing is that it may be expensive to pay for the extra time and personnel and it adds to the price charged for the service or product. What do you think about this?
