Quality Measures

Resources

Healthcare quality standards are critical and provide a baseline against which measurement and evaluation are assessed. There are common performance measurement selection criteria for determining the standards. In addition, it is essential that organizations track their trends in quality improvement measurements in order to continue the improvement process. For this discussion, consider the following:

  • Identify, compare, and contrast 2–3 external organizations that analyze quality improvement.
  • Offer a brief description of the unit or organization where you work or have worked in the past.
  • Identify and describe one healthcare quality standard that is applicable to your area.
  • How does the performance of your unit or organization measure against local, regional, or national standards?
  • What process is in place to monitor your unit or organization’s progress, and is this information disseminated to the staff? If so, how?
  • Identify strategies that could maintain or improve your unit’s current quality performance.

Be sure to support your discussion with references to the literature as appropriate.

Patient Safety Initiatives

In an effort to maintain a healing and caring environment, one of the most important things we can do for our clients is to ensure their safety. Engaging in quality assurance and process improvement strategies are one way to do this, but there are many others as well. For this discussion, consider the following:

  • Identify one patient safety initiative that is in place or would be helpful in your unit or organization.
  • What led you or your organization to this selection? What role do you think the risk management department plays in patient safety?
  • How does (or could) your unit or organization measure its success with this initiative?
  • What indirect impact could this initiative have (financial, satisfaction, and so on)?
  • What strategies will you now incorporate into your daily practice to improve patient outcomes in terms of fostering patient safety?

Be sure to support your discussion with references to the literature as appropriate.
