The Quality Improvement Department collaborates with the medical providers, nursing, and all other Henry J. Austin Health Center departments to develop integrated solutions that enhance quality care and service. Using principles of the six domains of quality Henry J. Austin Health Center creates measurable goals for the organization that are:
- Effective – Providing services based on scientific knowledge to all who could benefit and refraining from providing services to those not likely to benefit (avoiding underuse and misuse, respectively).
- Patient-centered – Providing care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs and values and ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions.
- Timely – Reducing waits and sometimes harmful delays for both those who receive and those who give care.
- Efficient – Avoiding waste, including waste of equipment, supplies, ideas and energy.
- Equitable – Providing care that does not vary in quality because of personal characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, geographic location and socioeconomic status.
We want you to feel confident that you will receive the best possible patient centered care when you visit us.
