Do you feel as though your patients' care is becoming so fragmented that something important might get missed? Do you wonder why deadly medication errors continue to happen despite using the most advanced technology? Are you concerned that patients continue to succumb to preventable chronic diseases despite decades of data supporting healthy lifestyles? If so, this book is the ideal resource to help you turn things around.
The IOM (Institute of Medicine) report gave healthcare providers and administrators a very clear and public picture of the dismal sate of healthcare quality in America. What was left undone by the IOM report was how practitioners were to address these findings at the grassroots level. Via this new book, it is possible to meet your quality goals through a series of simple yet powerful steps that can change how you deliver care.

Packed with practical, easy-to-implement suggestions, Advancing Excellence in Healthcare Quality will boost your operations, helping your practice build empowered teams, improve staff morale, and raise patient satisfaction.
