Cost of Poor Quality or Waste in
Integrated Delivery System Settings
Final Contract Report
The primary purpose of this IDSRN project was to collaboratively build a system that could be actively used to identify the costs of poor quality or waste in an effort to identify opportunities for improvement in hospital settings. The proposed identification strategy has been designed from a financial management perspective, recognizing that we are in the business of providing high-quality medical care.
