There is a business case for quality improvement programs primarily because quality, cost, value, speed and trust are intrinsically interlocked and tightly coupled. An unclear understanding of the financial benefits to health institutions about quality improvement programs beyond patients and Society maybe responsble for the slow spread. Health cover provider organizations have 4 fundamental interests:

  • The patient needs
  • The reputation
  • Espirit de corps and
  • Finacial return sufficient to maintain state-of-the-art medical practices.

Expenses attributed to quality improvement are seen by many as required cost of doing business and response to regulatory and accreditation agencies with little or no return on investment but patient centered care promotes processes that reduce waste and in turn reduce cost. There is negligible waste from inefficiency, overuse or preventable harm in quality care.

However, from a business perspective, clinical quality improvement can deliver net operating income if managed appropriately.

  • To make the case that pursuit of optimal quality and improved patient outcomes are also an effective healthcare business management strategy for fiscal well-being
  • We contend that investment in process improvement is aligned with patients' interest, the organization and the engagement of their workfoce.
  • Quality improvement activities are translated by the ability to continuously reduce waste, reduce response time, simplify designs and process of services, improve quality in order to work more effectively and efficiently, therefore, indicating a return on investment
