Many healthcare organizations lack the knowledge and skills required to implement the perioperative surgical home model to create and launch into additional service lines. Six case studies, represented by a variety of different institutions, share their diverse perspectives and journey implementing a perioperative surgical home model to improve on patient care and outcomes.
Case 1 of 6- New Hanover Regional Medical Center's implementation of a Hospital Quality Efficiency Program (HQEP).
This is a 3-module education activity with up to 1 credit available for completion of Module 1 and up to 7.5 additional credits after completion of Modules 2 and 3 for a total of 8.5 credits.
The Performance Improvement Action Plan is created in Module 2. Through a series of guided questions and utilizing concepts learned, you will create a Performance Improvement Action Plan. Subscribe to the discussion board to post comments or questions.
After plan submission, spend a minimum of 14 days to implement it. On day 15 you will have access to Module 3 to reflect and report on outcomes. Up to 7.5 credits can be claimed upon completion.
