    CONTINUOUS QUALITY IMPROVEMENT:                 

INTRODUCTION:

CQI is an approach to quality management that builds upon traditional quality assurance methods by emphasizing the organization and systems: it focuses on "process" rather than the individual; it recognizes both internal and external "customers"; it promotes the need for objective data to analyze and improve processes.


      Core Steps in Continuous Improvement

  • Form a team that has knowledge of the system needing improvement.
  • Define a clear aim.
  • Identify and define areas needing improvement
  • Brainstorm potential change strategies for producing improvement.
  • Plan, collect, and use data for facilitating improvement in quality
  • Apply the scientific method to test and refine changes.
