The most well-intended healthcare quality initiatives continue to fail. Daily. They are failing revenue objectives. They are failing patients. People working in healthcare know all too well the number of patients who die or are injured needlessly each day due to poor healthcare quality processes. Even the most legitimate efforts to improve healthcare quality are -- at best not meeting originally established expectations and at worst causing additional unforeseen problems or never reaching completion.
The primary reason quality initiatives in hospitals continue to fail?
An imbalance of focus on people, process and/or technology.
To compound the problem, rarely do healthcare quality initiatives consider other parallel quality projects which their initiative may be supporting, negatively impacting or duplicating. Lack of a comprehensive vision on ALL quality initiatives for healthcare and hospital facilities ensures the goals of each individual initiative will not be met to its fullest potential, if it is met at all.
To resolve the systemic problems causing healthcare and hospital quality initiatives to fail -- people, process, technology and synchronization with all other quality initiatives MUST be considered and integrated into all healthcare quality initiatives.
