To address these challenges in healthcare organizations, we have developed the Healthcare Improvement Sciences programs and secured best-in-class partners to offer much needed practical, cost-effective, and innovative approaches to improving healthcare outcomes.
FUNDAMENTALS OF QUALITY IMPROVEMENT I
The Fundamentals of Quality Improvement (FQI) is an introductory course addressed both to learners intending and those who wish to broaden their understanding as part of their professional and personal development.
FUNDAMENTALS OF QUALITY IMPROVEMENT II
This course aims to build on FQI I and having researched some of the ways processes occur in organizations, these units combine useful management theories and techniques to build on your quality improvement skills.
Following the completion of FQI I and II, learners will be able to select additional courses that use the concepts learned in the fundamentals course to continue their education in specific areas. Learners are encouraged to select pathways that are of the most interest to them to facilitate integration in the learner’s work environment.
Burnout is typically attributed to two factors: work/life balance issues and overly burdensome administrative practices. To address this, our staff, experienced in process improvement, organizational evaluations, and neuropsychological assessments, will meet with the leaders of your facility to learn more about your challenges. Clinical and organizational leaders are often unaware of the challenges their staff faces on a daily basis and benefit tremendously from the support that an experienced, objective, mediator can provide.
At a high level, our process involves three key stages:
R.E.C.I.P.E. WHITE PAPER
Burnout is a complex issue, with many associated causes and equally numerous effects. With reduced patient satisfaction, reduced health outcomes, and increased costs of providing care, designing interventions and assessments that capture all appropriate metrics are vital to properly assessing the success of any efforts to reduce staff burnout.
We recognize that a huge part of having a successful healthcare facility is having an engaged, satisfied staff. Too often incremental changes in organizational practices can have massive effects that significantly increase provider burnout. A burned-out physician is not an effective caregiver, increasing the risk to themselves, their organization, and, most importantly, the patient!
Acknowledging these risks, as well as the tremendous financial burden of replacing a burned-out physician that leaves, can mean the difference between a profitable clinic or department and one that operates at a deficit.
