Quality Improvement Success in Kansas with H1N1 and Social Distancing   [open pdf - 0B]

"The tools and techniques of Quality Improvement (QI) can produce rapid results in improved operating efficiency. Properly applied, QI allows leaders and employees to choose an improvement plan which integrates smoothly with existing priorities. Effective use of data gathering and analysis, leadership, and communication tools maintain accountability as improvement tasks are conducted. Existing resources are coordinated with other priorities to maximize outcomes while eliminating waste. Documentation and performance management techniques ensure alignment with strategic objectives and transparency of operations. In the summer of 2009, Kansas Department of Health and Environment QI teams used flowcharting to create a new information alert system."
