Healthcare organizations are patterns of energy, webs of human conversations and decisions. Think about this reality; relationships and interactions are the ‘genetic code’ of healthcare quality, people are not just individuals but rather individuals standing in the middle of many relationship systems.
We are aware of the concerns raised by the Coronavirus outbreak (also known as COVID-19), and our thoughts are with all those, who have been directly affected, in Italy, China, South Korea, and all other affected countries.
It was a pleasure to host Dr Chintan Maru, Director at the Global Development Incubator and Executive Director of Leapfrog to Value, as guest presenter for our latest live webinar.
In May 2019, WHO approved the resolution on Global Patient Safety Action on Patient Safety in the 73rd WHO Assembly (WHA). This resolution was developed under the strong leadership of Dr Tedros Adahanom Ghebreyesus WHO-DG; R.H.

The French Authority for Health (HAS) celebrates 20 years as an Institutional Member of ISQua.

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.
