By | Mar. 13, 2020 |

By | Mar. 12, 2020 |

Sustainable Quality Improvement - Emotion, Inspiration, and Creativity

By | Feb. 27, 2020 |

Quality is made up of interconnecting circles of complex activity; however, we are conditioned to see and think in quality straight lines. What we see depends on what we are prepared to see. Without exploring assumptions, healthcare organizations will be held hostage to indifference to quality failure and will be unable to reach quality improvement potential.
