IHI/NAHQ Research and Development

Released October 2013

In late 2012, NAHQ and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) joined forces to research how to make quality departments in healthcare more effective and less costly. The two organizations sought to develop new ideas on how to provide core quality functions and at half the current average expense. The team was involved in a 90-day rapid cycle research and development project including scanning quality departments both in and outside of healthcare and focusing on a key problem or issue. At NAHQ's 38th Annual Educational Conference, results of the report were released for the first time.
