Introducing The Q Report for quality initiatives

As you know, a key goal of the UF&Shands strategic plan is to focus on the patient experience, from providing the highest-quality, safest care to addressing issues of access and hospitality throughout our health system.

No matter our individual role, we can all make an individual commitment to putting our patients at the heart of everything we do.

As part of putting patients first, we also are seeking to increase transparency about patient care throughout the organization. Read more about some of our newest quality initiatives in our inaugural issue of The Q Report, a new bimonthly newsletter.

I hope you find the articles in this issue informative. You can link to it at http://ahc-qreport.sites.medinfo.ufl.edu or open the attached file to view. If you have suggestions for topics for future issues, please let me know.

We are making progress every day thanks to our shared focus. Thank you for all that you do.
