The Institute of Medicine (IOM) defines quality as “the degree to which health care services for individuals and populations increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes and are consistent with current professional knowledge” (AHRQ, 2022). The IOM further defines quality as having six domains, including Effectiveness, Efficiency, Equity, Patient Centeredness, Safety and Timeliness. As you might imagine, the areas of focus for organizations vary depending on what setting of healthcare you are working in.
Compare and contrast quality and quality management in two of the following settings, keeping in mind that the role of the quality professional can vary greatly depending on the organization:
● Hospitals
● Post-Acute Care (LTC, Rehabilitation, or SNF)
● Ambulatory Care (Primary Care or Urgent Care)
● Behavioral Health (Rehabilitation, Outpatient, Inpatient, Residential, or School Programs)
Answer the following questions:
Describe the two settings you chose to compare and contrast and the major population they serve. Consider the lens through which the quality professional is viewing their role in improving quality and safety.
What are the major differences in quality and quality management in these two settings?
In what ways are quality and quality management similar in these two settings?
How does quality in these settings help to advance the priorities set forth by the IOM?
Please respond to students who chose to compare and contrast different settings than you. In responding to others’ posts, focus on the following questions:
● Do their ideas align with what you expected?
● Are there other facets of quality and quality management that they need to consider for the settings that they chose?
● Do their settings approach quality and quality management differently than those you chose?
Initial post must be at least 250 words. Check for grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors before submitting. Your initial posting must be submitted by Sunday (before midnight) of this week. Be sure that your post provides a comprehensive response to all parts of the topic(s). Support your ideas with specific references and citations from course materials and/or academic/authoritative sources of information and/or relevant personal/professional experience (as appropriate).
