Healthcare Quality and Safety (HQS) is the study and prevention of adverse events, suboptimal care, ineffective treatments, inefficient processes, and unnecessary clinical variation in health systems. HQS professionals are on the forefront of transitioning healthcare delivery towards high-value care. Originally created by the Jefferson College of Population Health to develop a critical mass of physician faculty able to lead in quality improvement and patient safety, the Quality Improvement & Patient Safety (QIPS) Leadership Development Program has grown and evolved to encompass interprofessional leaders from all areas of healthcare and train the next generation of quality and safety leaders.

Topics include Project and Change management, Data Acquisition and Analysis, Making the Business Case for Quality, Leadership, Proactive Risk Assessment and Retrospective Cause Analysis, Team Building and Negotiation Skills, High Reliability and Complexity Science and Presentation Skills.  A major component of the QIPS program is the individual, mentored improvement project. The monthly sessions are designed to support the development and implementation of the learners’ improvement work.

This session covers Data Acquisition and Management.

This session focuses on Healthcare Data Analytics, Determining Your Project Deliverable, Metrics and Data Needs Overview, and Applying Data Needs and Metrics to Your Project.
