Tools To Improve Quality and Safety- Resolve to Listen to Our Patients“…Meanwhile, back in the C-suite, whats the role for me and other CEOs who wish to move this agenda along?Clearly, we must resolve to retain and expand our role as local champions for quality and safety, front-line based process improvement, and transparency in our own institutions.As heads of academic institutions, we should resolve to offer stories of our experiences to people in other hospitals, to help create a mutual learning environment. As industry leaders, we should resolve to encourage hard- hitting and effective regulation to move along a recalcitrant profession.And, we should resolve to develop the humility to trust that the patients have an important role in all this. We should invite them in, make them feel welcome, and shut up and listen when they show us a better way”.~ by Paul Levy, President and CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center source: “Running A Hospital” http://www.runningahospital.blogspot.com/ 01/06/11

The IOM report, For the Public’s Health: The Role of Measurement in Action and Accountability, reinforces the urgency to address health not just in the doctor’s office but where it starts—in our homes, schools, jobs and communities… Echoing the work of the RWJF Commission to Build a Healthier America, the report also calls for increased federal focus on the non-clinical factors that we know affect how healthy we are such as access to affordable, healthy foods; safe places for children to exercise; and access to high-quality education.”Source: For the Public’s Health Publisher: Institute of Medicine Published: Dec 09, 2010 This is the first of three corresponding RWJF/IOM reports on strengthening the public health system that will be released between now and the end of 2011.

Are You Content to Just Be A Social Media Presence?“…Many [hospitals] seem content to merely having a socialmedia presence – they’re not active in keeping postsupdated, do nothing to start conversational topics withpeople or even reply to serious concerns. “Hospitals arestill behind the times with social media and only a smallpercentage are actually involved,”~ Alisha Kuyper, spokeswoman for Flagstaff Medical Center in Arizona.
