2021 UW Health Way Performance Improvement: Improving Verona Clinic HTN Control during COVID-19 Pandemic
At UW Health, we aspire towards Remarkable Healthcare, and to be remarkable in all areas of our organization, we need to think the same way about the work we do. How each person’s work optimizes patient and employee safety, patient experience, and provider and staff wellbeing, needs to be understood. By using the principles of UW Health Way, we will create a safer, more positive experience for our patients and a more fulfilling workplace for our providers and staff. We want to empower our providers and staff to be problem solvers for the betterment of our patients. The UW Health Way framework includes three parts:
- Respect for People
The people who do the work and receive our services are foundational to UW Health Way and our success. This part defines how we treat each other, our patients and families, our customers, and our work. The goal is to enable everyone to engage in delivering Remarkable Healthcare
- Continuous Improvement
Everyone plays a part in the services we provide to our patients and customers so everyone has a role in the continuous improvement of our processes. This part outlines the standard tools and methods we use for improvement. The goal is to improve little by little, each and every day.
- Management System
To be successful, we must align the organization on what problems we are solving for our customers that also achieve our vision. This integrates UW Health Way into our daily work so that we can monitor and improve it real-time, work across the organization instead of in silos, and directly impact strategy through our daily work.
The UW Health Way Performance Improvement Project affords the healthcare team the opportunity to earn continuing education credit including ABIM MOC Part IV credit for completing continuous improvement efforts.
All UW Health physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other health care providers who engage in UW Health Way quality improvement efforts.
