From QA to QI graphic

My firm got its name from dialogue with physician leaders about the Quality Improvement Model for clinical peer review as it contrasts with the outmoded, dysfunctional Quality Assurance Model.

Facilitating Better Quality, Safety and Resource Use

By bringing the power of research and innovation to fix dysfunctions in healthcare management.

Current Focus: Removing Barriers to High Reliability

Three National studies of clinical peer review process show that most programs have yet to adopt best practices. The punitive QA Model not only prevails among both physicians and nurses, it is a major barrier to progress in quality & patient safety.

Any healthcare organization can now easily transition to the QI Model for clinical peer review, which strongly supports a culture of safety and high reliability

Program Management Software

Simplify and strengthen clinical peer review process & data management for nurses and physicians

Federal Protections for Learning from Adverse Events

Comply with ACA and engage clinicians to improve quality & patient safety through self-reporting with Patient Safety Organization services (see whitepaper). Also Connecticut State-approved.
