I’ve met many clinical and operational leaders across the U.S. and seen how many have become progressively cynical and disengaged when faced with important healthcare reform issues like cost cutting and tight budgets. These clinicians would agree that equally important are quality and safety issues. However, most don’t have the tools available to actually measure that quality or patient outcomes. When clinicians do have access to the ability to measure, and the work together, I’ve seen enormous energy arise as they ask questions they really care about: What is quality? What do we measure? How do we achieve the best outcome?
