The Healthcare Quality Book provides a framework, methodology, and practical approaches to assist healthcare professionals in championing improvement efforts. The book is divided into three sections that cover the fundamentals of healthcare quality, critical quality topics, and key strategies for effectively leading quality. The extensively revised fifth edition of this definitive text brings together healthcare thought leaders with a wide range of subject matter expertise. Chapter contributors explore the foundation of healthcare quality, share their perspectives on essential and cutting-edge topics, and offer strategies for learning the skills to lead a culture of quality. New content includes chapters on health equity and disparities in care and expanded content on quality improvement tools, the patient experience, and digital technologies. The book concludes with three well-developed case studies of quality improvement in action that incorporate the lessons learned in the preceding chapters.
