Assignment Overview

According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (2002), “a central goal
of healthcare quality improvement is to maintain what is good about the existing
healthcare system while focusing on the areas that need improvement” (para. 2).
This assignment will familiarize you with the quality improvement (QI) approaches
and models that health care administrators can effectively apply.
