It is always a treat to run into friends from training, and to see those people who we follow virtually on emails, phone calls, etc. The first part of the week is dedicated to Allied Health Professionals - and the work they do to keep programs on track is impressive. Change happens with deliberate effort. This is a group with passion, focused on delivering high value, high quality care.
The new quality initiative with American College of Surgeons (MBSAQIP) is the next step in making progress for the care we all aspire to.
I wish patients and administrators could see this stuff happen, but the results will speak for themselves! Data is not easy to obtain for long term care, or for complex disease and treatment. This new project makes it more affordable, less cumbersome, more useful.
