Designing, Aligning, and Integrating Measurement for Improvement

Guest Speaker: 

Brandon Bennett, improvement advisor, Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI)

Session Description: 

Complex systems often struggle with the ability to understand… change, people, or even the concept of quality improvement. How can Saskatchewan’s complex health system adapt and adopt this understanding in a measurable manner? 

Performance metrics are a powerful tool of organizational change and serve as a stepping stone to understanding. Organizations that define objectives, establish goals, measure progress, acknowledge achievement, and display the results for all to see can turbo-charge productivity and gracefully move an organization in a new direction.

To assist our complex system and its players in achieving integration and alignment of data, HQC is proud to bring Brandon Bennett to Saskatchewan to lead a one day workshop for system leaders and data support personnel. Join us to learn about improvement science, how to utilize data in health systems for improvement, how to employ operational improvement at the organizational level, and more.
