Nurses Lead Quality Improvement and Innovation
The United States health care system is undergoing a profound transformation. Accelerated by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the movement to fee-for-value is propelling us as health care leaders to fundamentally rethink our models for how we care for the persons and families we serve. At Ascension Health, this era of change prompts us to renew our focus on our mission as a Catholic health care system, to provide “spiritually centered, personalized care that sustains and improves the health of individuals and communities.”1
What this means in practice is that we are building teams, redesigning processes and breaking down silos so that we can meet the needs of persons from all walks of life through all stages of their lives, especially those who are struggling. Our quadruple aim is to provide the highest quality of care at a lower cost, while offering exceptional experiences to the persons we serve and the providers who make up our care communities.
A vital component of this approach to care is that it is an interdisciplinary team effort, with physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, physical and occupational therapists, among others, collaborating with each other and with patients across the continuum of care.
