WE WILL actively participate in quality improvement activities. Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) is a key component of the Deaconess Health System culture. Participation by all employees is critical to building and sustaining this culture. There are many ways employees can be involved in quality improvement.

• WE WILL participate in department or multi-disciplinary quality teams to address problems.
Approved methods for problem solving are FADE and Six Sigma.
• WE WILL submit improvement ideas through the Opportunities for Improvement (OFI) process.
