Measurement, Analysis and Reporting Quality Indicators

Risk Reduction and Risk Management

Patient safety and risk reduction require more than analysis and good intentions. Improvements are contingent upon processes that engage relevant stakeholders, allow for the integration of new and/or innovative strategies, drive long-term commitment and support cultural change.

Clinical Applications

The implementation and success of clinical quality and safety initiatives not only benefit patients, but contribute to best practices in medical rehabilitation, and can profoundly impact the nation’s delivery of health care.

Outpatient Rehabilitation: Safety and Quality across the Care Continuum

Safety and quality are important determinants to patients’ outcomes and rehabilitation experience in the outpatient setting, as well as to an organization’s overall operations and performance. Accurate documentation, measurement and reporting, and the implementation of best practices can drive both patient care and organizational improvement.
