Quality and Patient Safety
We strive to deliver the highest value, patient-centered care and to advance the scholarship of quality and patient safety (QI). We recognize that QI is a clinical, academic and financial imperative for a safe and sustainable health care delivery system. Our department is broadly engaged in QI - with numerous active projects across our divisions. The High Value Care Program originating in the department is a national model for implementing high value care projects in an academic medical center.
- Create infrastructure and resources within the department to support scholarly QI activities
- Develop faculty skills in QI methodology and cultivate a cadre of faculty experts in QI
- Enhance innovation and scholarly productivity in QI and high value care
- Align and promote collaboration in QI efforts across divisions
Divisional QI and Patient Safety Projects
Each of our divisions is engaged in QI and Patient Safety activities. Many projects are cross-divisional and inter-departmental, and many are conducted in collaboration with the Jeffords Institute for Quality and Operational Effectiveness at the University of Vermont Medical Center. A curated table of current, active QI Projects across divisions is provided via the link below.
