As part of Franciscan St. James Health's commitment to improve the surgery processes, the hospital joined the three-year quality improvement organization initiative offered by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. A strong multidisciplinary team comprised of departments that impacted the surgery process was created, meeting on a monthly basis to review data and make rapid process improvements. Ten quality indicators were reviewed and all showed sustained improvement over the 3-year project.

This case study is part of the Illinois Hospital Association's annual quality awards. Each year, IHA recognizes and celebrates the achievements of Illinois hospitals in continually improving and transforming health care in the state. These hospitals are improving health by striving to achieve the Triple Aim--improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction); improving the health of populations; and reducing the per capita cost of health care.

Award recipients achieve measurable and meaningful progress in providing care that is:

  • Safe
  • Timely
  • Effective
  • Efficient
  • Equitable
  • Patient-centered

(The Institute of Medicine's six aims for improvement.)
