Continuous Quality Improvement

Put simply, continuous quality improvement (CQI) is a philosophy that encourages all members of your organization to continuously ask:

  • How are we doing? Can we do it better? 1
  • Can we do things more efficiently?
  • Can we be more effective?
  • Can we do things faster or in a more timely way?

Quality improvement begins with a culture of improving patient outcomes, your organization, and population health in general.
