ASA Monitor 09 2015, Vol.79, 50-51.
High-performing anesthesia practices continually strive to improve patient outcomes and operational efficiency. The Practice Quality Improvement Committee (PQIC) of the Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI) is charged with facilitating this process. The Committee will contribute occasional pieces to the ASA NEWSLETTER that highlight a real-world quality improvement challenge and the steps taken by the anesthesia practice to resolve it. We hope these case studies will be useful to other groups experiencing similar issues. Feedback regarding these presentations can be sent to the PQIC care of Ashley Kieta:
Collection of data is all well and good, but improvement in patient outcomes requires the ability to turn information into action. The AQI Practice Quality Improvement Committee (PQIC) will collect and present examples of this principle so that all of us can learn from those who are doing it well.
