Note from Dr. Bennett, QIPS Day Chair:

I want to briefly thank Tammy Elliott (QIPS Day Coordinator), Dr. Fore (DIO), Department Chairs and Quality Champions, as well as Quality Improvement Teams who worked so hard to make our Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QIPS) Day a memorable and exciting experience last Friday. We saw seven (7) excellent presentations from Department of Surgery, Orthopaedics, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics.

Special thanks to our Judges Panel: Dr. Adam Campbell, VP of Patient Safety and Quality; Jill Steelman, Senior Director of Clinical Education; Eileen Shrum, Patient Safety/Quality Director. You had a difficult job and we appreciate your thoughtful review and deliberation!

In addition, we enjoyed eleven (11) posters representing projects from Departments of Internal Medicine (including Cardiology Fellowship Program), Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, and Urology. It was amazing to see the interactions of so many people discussing projects and possible future collaborations! 

Congratulations to all platform and poster presenters!

As you will see, this was an excellent collection of improvement projects featuring outstanding speakers and great use of QI methods, teamwork, and data to align people and resources with noble aims to improve care at Erlanger Health System.
