QSVI Challenge

Dear New POSNA Members:

 

The focus upon quality, safety, and value is critical for all us, and aligns perfectly with the Triple Aim for Health care - Better Care for patients, Better Community Health, and Better Value/Lower Cost. The Quality Safety Value Initiative (QSVI) Challenge was created by POSNA for a couple reasons: (1) We want to improve the outcomes for our patients and families by a clear focus on quality, safety, and value; and (2) We want to be the leading group that defines quality, safety, value in our field.

 

In the first 6 months, over 100 members participated. Please join us in taking the QSVI Challenge!

 

Thank you,

POSNA QSVI Chair
