In the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI’s) Impacting Cost + Quality initiative, IHI worked intensely for over two years with 40 healthcare organizations to drive out waste, reduce operating expenses, and improve quality. IHI learned that there are several key drivers to successfully reducing operating expenses while maintaining or improving quality. These include: aligning efforts top-to-bottom and bottom-up, establishing working partnerships between clinical and financial teams, harvesting ideas from front-line staff, and viewing waste as an opportunity to improve systems.

CFHI is hosting this workshop for the second time to help you get on the same track. This workshop is a synthesized, fast-paced version of IHI’s two-and-a-half year initiative that has been adapted by CFHI and IHI for the Canadian context in partnership with BC Patient and Safety Quality Council and the Health Quality Council of Saskatchewan. In only two days, you will learn the proven strategies, tools, and best practices to save money and drive quality in your organization.
