Quality Director Boot Camp
Arm Your Quality Director With the Basic Training Needed to Enhance Your Hospital's Clinical and Financial Performance
Attend this comprehensive four-day basic training session to learn the Quality Director’s roles and responsibilities as well as how to perform them successfully to meet state and federal regulatory requirements.
With the hospital’s financial performance and viability increasingly tied to quality, patient safety, and patient satisfaction, the role of the Quality Director has become critical to the hospital’s success.
- The average cost of non-reimbursable procedures:
- Hospital-acquired infections $32,250
- Hospital-acquired pressure ulcers $46,500
- Hospital falls and trauma cases $36,500
- The average administrative cost of defending a single lawsuit associated with a medical error: $315,000
- Up to 2% of a hospital’s Medicare reimbursement is at risk if value-based purchasing scores are low (i.e. Core Measures, HCAHPS).
- Satisfied patients will tell an average of 8 people about their experience. Dissatisfied patients will tell an average of 16 people about their experience.
The costs of a poorly trained Quality Director are real! Join QHR’s seasoned quality experts in a hands-on training session, focused on teaching the core skills that every new Quality Director must have to be successful in today’s turbulent healthcare times. During this intensive four-day training session, instructors will cover the new Quality Director’s role in addressing accreditation, regulatory requirements, working with the medical staff (i.e. OPPE/ FPPE), reporting data to the public, controlling infections, managing the environment of care, and effectively capturing, tracking and reporting on hospital quality measures data.
Participants will leave the program with:
- sample policies and procedures, tools, forms, and other useful resources,
- detailed explanations of what the Quality Director role entails,
- tips to engage hospital leadership and the medical staff,
- a Quality Director tool kit,
- best practice strategies, and
- a tailored action plan that they can immediately begin implementing upon their return to the hospital.
In addition, QHR will offer participants exclusive access to QHR’s private monthly Quality Director conference calls where they will receive information on the latest best practices and regulatory updates and have access to experts who can address any questions they might have.
