Quality improvement in health care organizations involves a system of continuously finding better approaches to provide quality patient care and service. Health care delivery is complex and accomplished by a team of health care professionals. At its core, quality improvement is a team process and effort. In the health care ecosystem, there are various external stakeholders who have a stake on quality of care. Each internal or external stakeholder can make significant contributions to sustain quality of care and patient safety.
