Process Improvement in Action
DIVERSE INTERESTS PURSUING A COMMON GOAL.
A Collaborative is a single, or series of, educational events, developed to address specific episodes of care, in which Yankee staff work with hospital members to improve quality, reduce costs, and drive operational efficiencies.
Yankee Alliance sponsors collaboratives, with our own level of expertise as well as industry experts, to help members develop quality improvement initiatives for specific areas within their hospitals.
Team sharing and networking are facilitated through conference calls, online community discussions, webinars, and on site learning sessions. Typically member participants will:
Learn from faculty and colleagues
Receive coaching from faculty members
Gather new information on the subject matter and process improvement
Share information and build collaborative work on improvement plans
Reduce their costs
Previous collaboratives have been conducted for the Orthopedics and Cardiovascular Services.
