A Practical Introduction
A CFHA Research and Evaluation Webinar
Wednesday, August 24th, 2016 at 12:00 PM EST
Quality improvement (QI) can make clinical service delivery safer, more cost effective, more time efficient, and more patient centered, but many of us still don’t understand how to do QI or what it entails. A basic understanding of quality improvement is rapidly becoming a requirement for medical providers and allied health professionals alike. This presentation will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of QI and will also review the unique ways in which QI can be applied to integrated care settings. We’ll also use case-based examples to help illustrate how QI has been used to create novel integrated care models and enhance existing ones.
