Primer on indicator development and application : measuring quality in health care( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about the development and use of performance measures in health care. Performance measures are certainly not a new concept. Indeed their use has been required by Joint Commission quality assurance standards for almost two decades. But experience has taught us that not all performance measures are good and helpful. Thus we consciously reserve the term "indicator" to connote a meaningful and useful performance measure. This primer sets forth a step-by-step description of the indicator development methodology that has evolved as a major component of the Joint Commission's Agenda for Change initiatives, and provides both theoretical and concrete discussions of indicator applications. As such it offers a new foundation for construction the statistical cornerstone of contemporary quality improvement practices
The Joint commission guide to quality assurance by Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Structure, process and outcome; mortality data; severity of illness; data management; monitoring and standards; consumer concerns; cost containment; risk management; clinical standards; clinical indicators. These phrases proliferate in health care literature today, signifying a central concern for their common denominator: quality. But what do these concepts mean to the health care organization striving the best possible care? What do they mean to the individual practitioner, the department head, the quality assurance coordinator? The Joint Commission Guide to Quality Assurance places quality in context for individual organizations and instructs health care professionals in the theory and performance of quality assurance. From the plethora of activity surrounding quality, the eight chapters of The Joint Commission Guide to Quality Assurance present both background on quality in health care and specific components of an effective quality assurance program

6 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite remarkable advances in almost every field of medicine, an age-old problem continues to haunt health care professionals - the occurence of errors. This book aims to help health care organizations prevent systems failures by using root cause analysis to identify causes of a sentinal event, to implement risk-reduction strategies which decrease the likelihood of a recurrence of the event, and to identify effective and efficient ways of improving performance. Root cause analysis is an effective tool used both reactively to investigate an adverse event that already has occurred, and proactively, to analyze and improve processes and systems before they break down
