The Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s 26th Annual National Forum

Achieving health care that is safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, and patient-centered (STEEEP) is not an endpoint, but a journey.  Baylor Scott & White Health has traveled this journey during its 100 years as a quality leader. We see it as part of our mission to work with others to help them achieve the highest levels of quality and safety for their patients. Baylor Scott & White Health employees participated at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s 26th Annual National Forum last week in Orlando, Florida in order to help spread quality improvement initiatives.

Dr. Andrew Masica led a workshop on “Insights for Implementing a Bundle for ICU Delirium”

Dr. John Garrett and his team presented a poster on “Saving Lives: Searching for Sepsis in Triage”

Dr. David Ballard and Dr. Brett Stauffer presented on “Achieving STEEEP Health at Baylor Scott & White Health – Quality Improvement Infrastructure for a Health Care System”

The STEEEP Global Institute exhibited at a booth in the conference hall

Senior leaders were also available for quality improvement discussions on the following topics:

  • The Journey to the Delivery of STEEEP Health Care
  • Delivery of STEEEP Care in the Emergency Department
  • Operationalizing Clinical Effectiveness in Health Care Delivery Organizations
  • Quality Improvement Program Implementation and Impact Evaluation Strategies
  • Use of Electronic Health Records in Quality Improvement and Research
  • Quality Improvement in Sepsis and Delirium
  • Reducing Hospital Readmissions
  • Delivery of STEEEP Health Care within an Accountable Care Organization
  • The STEEEP Governance Council- Infrastructure for a STEEEP Quality Framework

Overall the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s 26th Annual National Forum turned out to be quite a success and we look forward to seeing everyone there again next year!
