TMC leaders at national forum for quality improvement

ihiTucson Medical Center has a contingent of 10 leaders, from physicians to trustees to clinical staff members, taking part in a national discussion over two days on quality improvement.

This is the 28th year that the Institute for Healthcare Improvement has sponsored an annual conference devoted to health care quality. More than 6,000 health care professionals across the country have gathered in Orlando to take part in the discussion, designed to share best practices.

“As a hospital that embraces the Lean management philosophy of continuous improvement, TMC is already engaged in learning and networking on a national scale about how we can get better at what we do every single day,” said Judy Rich, TMC’s president and CEO. “This conference is an important opportunity in allowing us to take part in this important global discussion.”

“It has really clarified for me and the team that the most important strategy that we can have is to build upon our culture of safety for our patients.”
