This past week Baylor Scott & White Health (BSWH) sent a leader in quality improvement to Mexico to teach the STEEEP® Academy. This program was taught in Spanish at Hospital Galenia in Cancun and 12 attendees were present. BSWH was excited to have the opportunity to spread the STEEEP care quality improvement framework to clinicians in Mexico in order to improve the delivery of health care worldwide.
The STEEEP Academy teaches health care leaders the theory and techniques of process improvement and empowers physicians, nurses, administrators, and other stakeholders with the skills and strategies needed to improve health care quality, patient safety, and operational outcomes. STEEEP Academy courses incorporate a variety of process improvement methodologies and tools with a focus on creating a culture of continuous quality improvement.
Topics Covered Include:
- Current challenges in healthcare delivery, management, and reform
- Data collection and analysis techniques
- Communication and change leadership principles and skills
- Standardization of care and other work processes
- Alignment of leadership and culture to promote continuous quality improvement
- Case studies of how Baylor Scott & White Health has successfully applied quality initiatives to improve patient care and reduce costs
