Definition of Quality Improvement
  • A management process and set of disciplines that
    are coordinated to ensure that the organization
    consistently meets and exceeds customer

QI Top management philosophy resulting in
complete organizational involvement qi Conduct
of improving a process at the microsystem level

  • Adapting or adopting model practices

Reporting Progress
  • Performance in standards
  • Indicators and outcomes
  • Health indicators
  • Program evaluation data
  • Regular data tracking, analysis and review
  • Basis for QI efforts

Integration of QI into Agency Culture
Multilevel Model of Integration
  • Spread can be defined as moving from common
    practices to best practices
  • Diffusion is the rate at which innovation is
    adopted within an organization or industry

Analysis of QI Techniques in Police Departments,
JPHMP Mar/April 2009
Levels of QI Integration
JPHMP Article Recommendations
  • Implement QI as a comprehensive management
    philosophy rather than a project-by-project
  • Top officials must set a vision for the agency
    and exhibit constant leadership, focus
    continuously on mission
  • Use the lessons/proven methods from others
    general healthcare, police, etc. to overcome
  • Find creative ways to secure resources for QI
  • Build on existing PH tools and capabilities
  • Conduct a self-assessment for QI readiness in
    your agency

Bill Riley and Russell Brewer
Poll Question
  • How would you describe level of quality
    improvement integration in your organization?
  • A. Level 1 No interest or activity
  • B. Level 2 Awareness, interest, one time
  • C. Level 3 Multiple teams and QI tools but no
    repetition or saturation
  • D. Level 4 Specific QI model integrated
    throughout organization

Lets Discuss!
  • What is your experience with the four components
    of performance management in your Health

QI Principles and Strategies
The Quality Environment
  • Agency-wide commitment to assessing and
    continuously improving quality over time?
  • Decisions based on data?
  • Agency achieving goals?
  • Use data to decide on improvement initiatives and
    to know if the improvements are successful?

Principles of Quality Management
  1. Know your stakeholders and what they need
  2. Focus on processes
  3. Use data for making decisions
  4. Use teamwork to improve work
  5. Make quality improvement continuous
  6. Demonstrate leadership commitment

1. Know Your Stakeholders
  • Identify stakeholders and their needs
  • Sector Mapping
  • Community Assessment
  • Advisory Council Input
  • Survey Data Focus Groups
  • Force Field Analysis
  • Set goals based on stakeholder needs

Public Sector Map
  • School Boards
  • Public schools
  • BIA schools
  • Charter schools
  • Private faith based schools

2. Focus on Work Process
  • 85 of poor quality is a result of poor work
    processes, not of staff doing a bad job
  • Processes often go wrong at the point of the
  • Attend to improving the overall process, not just
    one partsome of the most complex processes are
    the result of creating a work around

Measure processes that are
  • Important and relevant to population
  • Control vs. Influence
  • High-risk
  • Health Alerts, Drinking Water, CD Investigations
  • High-volume
  • WIC, Food Safety, OSS, Immunizations
  • Problem-prone
  • Emergency Preparedness

Tools to Link Work and Outcomes
  • Logic models and work flow charts
  • Customer-supplier relationships
  • Client flow, information flow
  • Data and analysis tools
  • Root cause tools fishbone diagram, Pareto chart
  • Force field analysis
  • Interrelationship digraph

3. Use Data to Make Decisions
  • Use performance assessment data to target
  • Use data analysis tools to develop information
  • Analyze data to identify root cause
  • Use data to monitor performance outcomes

Poll Question
  • How frequently do you/your organization use data
    to target improvement efforts?
  • A. Rarely
  • B. Sometimes
  • C. Often
  • D. Always

Use Data to Make Decisions
  • Conceptual Tools
  • Numerical Tools
  • Affinity Diagram
  • Brainstorming
  • Process Flow Chart
  • Cause and Effect Diagram (Fishbone)
  • Five Whys
  • Matrix Diagram
  • Check Sheet
  • Bar Chart
  • Histogram
  • Pareto Chart
  • Control Chart
  • Run Chart

See Goal/QPC PH Memory Joggers
Power of Root Cause Analysis
  • W. Edwards Deming transformed quality control
    processes by applying his beliefs
  • Measuring outputs/outcomes at the end ignores
    root cause and ensuing poor results.
  • Addressing root causes through ongoing evaluation
    and quality improvement avoids problems and
    improves quality.
  • Ongoing measurement with feedback loops helps

The Public Health Quality Improvement Handbook,
page 22
Root Cause Analysis
  • Goal
  • To find the real cause of a problem or issue
  • Understand the impact to the organization
  • Resolve it with a permanent fix
  • We need to determine
  • what happened?
  • why it happened?
  • where it happened?
  • how to eliminate it?

4. Use Teamwork
  • QI efforts need buy-in from all stakeholders
  • Creative ideas are needed
  • Division of labor is needed
  • Process often crosses functions
  • Solution generally affects many

Tips for Effective QI Teams
  • Teams should develop a clear charge and support
  • Teams should adopt working agreements (cell phone
    etiquette to decision procedures)
  • Teams should assign roles of facilitators and
  • Team process has predictable stages that are
    useful to keep in mind
  • Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing

Affinity Diagram
  • Why use it?
  • To allow a QI team to creatively generate a large
    number of ideas/issues and organize in natural
    groupings to understand the problem and potential
  • What does it do??
  • Encourages creativity by everyone on team
  • Breaks down communication barriers
  • Encourages non-traditional connections among
  • Allows breakthroughs to emerge naturally
  • Encourages ownership of results
  • Overcomes team paralysis

5. Make QI Continuous
  • QI is a system-wide approach to assessing and
    continuously improving quality of the processes
    and services over time
  • See inter-relationships, not parts
  • Understand the flow of work, not the one-time
  • Detail the work processes
  • Determine cause and effect relationships
  • Identify points of highest leverage
  • Improve and innovate, not just change for
    changes sake

Improvement Model - PDSA Cycle
  • The Plan Do Check/Study Act Cycle is a
    trial-and-learning method to discover what is an
    effective and efficient way to design or change a
  • The check or study part of the cycle may
    require some clarification after all, we are
    used to planning, doing/acting. It compels the
    team to learn from the data collected, its
    effects on other parts of the system, and under
    different conditions, such as different

PDSA Improvement Cycle
Poll Question
  • Do you use the PDSA cycle in your organization?
  • A. Not familiar with the PDSA cycle
  • B. Familiar with PDSA cycle but don't use
  • C. Familiar with cycle and use occasionally
  • D. Knowledgeable about the cycle and use

Make QI Continuous
  • Use conclusions from data analysis to identify
    areas for improvement
  • Charge QI team and provide support
  • Provide QI training
  • Develop AIM statement
  • Use tools to understand root causes
  • Use data for baseline and analysis
  • Design process improvement to address root causes
  • Train staff on the process improvement

Adopt or Adapt Model Practices
  • Use data to identify need for improvement
  • Identify exemplary practices in
  • Other local and state health departments,
  • CDC and other national organizations,
  • Other industries
  • Describe your process (Logic Model or Flow Chart)
  • Study the exemplary practice process
  • Adopt or adapt as appropriate

6. Demonstrate Leadership Commitment
  • Build a QI culture in your agency
  • Connect the organizations strategic plan to
    performance improvement
  • Know and use quality principles
  • Initiate and support QI teams
  • Encourage all staff to use quality improvement in
    daily work
  • Reward improvements
  • Assure adequate QI infrastructure for quality
    assessment and improvement activities

QI Culture and QI Council
  • Critical to make data/reporting meaningful to
  • Performance measures
  • More is not better
  • Resource level declines after the first data
    reporting period
  • Staff need lots of practice/training to develop
    good performance measures
  • RCI/QI projects
  • Quality planning is more appropriate than QI for
    some projects with long-term outcomes

Change vs. Improvement
  • W. Edwards Deming stated Of all changes Ive
    observed, about 5 were improvements, the rest,
    at best, were illusions of progress.
  • We must become masters of improvement
  • We must learn how to improve rapidly
  • We must learn to discern the difference between
    improvement and illusions of progress
