Medical College of Wisconsin General Internal Medicine Hospitalist Program - Quality Improvement
About our program
Quality Improvement Projects
QI Project Ideas
Ideas for QI projects come from individuals in the hospitalist group or are identified by leadership as an area for improvement.
Project categories can include:
- Improving the patient experience
- Reducing hospital length of stay
- Reducing hospital readmissions
- Improving provider communication, among many others
QI Project Idea Process
Hospitalists bring ideas to a monthly meeting where colleagues and support staff provide feedback and identify the necessary resources for implementation. Our quality program has a Hospitalist Program Manager who assists with implementation, monitoring, and data acquisition for QI projects. Further assistance is available if there is a desire to publish findings.
Since April 2020, our section has instituted over 50 QI projects. On a rolling basis, the section often has over 25 ongoing projects and has completed multiple successful projects.
