By reviewing the evolution of healthcare quality and identifying key attributes and skills of contemporary and future quality professionals, attendees will be able to apply lessons learned to revolutionize their healthcare quality department. Healthcare quality is in the midst of a revolution, both in focus and expected skillsets. Previously, the role of healthcare quality was quality assurance, with a retrospective and reactive approach to identifying opportunities. The contemporary approach is centered on calculated and deliberate improvement programs. As the healthcare industry shifts from volume to value, the development and implementation of a strong, dynamic quality program is imperative. The performance expectations of quality professionals from clinical and business leaders increase exponentially every year. Quality professionals are now expected to be systems thinkers and change agents. Professionals with advanced degrees are crucial into navigating the complexity of the healthcare system and revolutionizing the industry into a desired future state.
- Apply concepts learned to revolutionize the organizational quality department
- Discuss the evolution of healthcare quality in the United States
- Identify the importance of highly skilled and educated quality teammates to lead organizational change
