As Healthcare Quality Week 2019 (Oct. 20-26) gets underway, Q-Centrix® honors all the hardworking healthcare quality professionals for their untiring commitment to improving patient care and their positive impact on quality of life for people everywhere.
“Because of healthcare quality professionals’ tireless work inside and outside the clinical setting, improving patient care and safety is no longer an afterthought, but rather a rapidly growing priority among healthcare organizations,” said Milton Silva-Craig, Q-Centrix CEO. “These individuals’ dedication to improvement touches virtually every aspect of healthcare delivery, including patients, care, processes, and costs. For taking on – and delivering on – this tremendous responsibility, we cannot thank them enough.”
Healthcare quality professionals play a critical role in helping hospitals and healthcare providers measurably improve safety and quality of care while lowering costs, which is the basis for Q-Centrix’s mission and the work it carries out on behalf of its more than 600 hospital partners. A distinct characteristic of Q-Centrix’s partnerships is having the industry’s most extensive team of quality experts as virtual extensions of hospitals’ quality departments.
Q-Centrix advances quality data management and reporting solutions into the industry with input from its partner hospitals and its own expert team. This includes helping hospitals achieve much-needed enterprise-level approaches to quality improvement amid an industry-wide shift to value-based care as well as providing flexible, scalable solutions that encompass advanced automated technologies to meet ever-changing quality reporting demands.
“It is undeniable that we would not be able to deliver the comprehensive solutions that help hospitals achieve their quality goals without the expertise of our amazing team members and the invaluable insight of our partners,” said Silva-Craig. “An important part of our Healthcare Quality Week celebration is recognizing the professional growth and growth in numbers of the quality professionals within our own ranks, which recently surpassed 1,000 strong.”
Q-Centrix’s HQW 2019 activities include recognizing the expertise and wisdom of all healthcare quality professionals by inviting them to share responses on social media to the question: What does quality mean to you?
