And here are some articles that I think you’ll find interesting and helpful.

Locating the Hidden Savings in Clinical Care

The Secret to Building Effective Quality Programs

This article describes my secret for building effective quality programs.  I explain that borrowing practices from finance is an important way to improve the success of a quality program.  I alluded to this during our presentation.  If you’re willing to teach your quality leaders how you’ve hardwired financial performance into your organization, then they can apply those tactics to the quality program – and their implementation success should sky rocket.

Please feel free to share any of these resources with your colleagues.  If they have any questions, please invite them to give me a call or send me an email.

Again, all the best on your quality and safety journey!  JB
