Quality Improvement encompasses a variety of different aspects of healthcare.
Quality AssurancePatient satisfaction is just one aspect of Quality Assurance. Patients from the Rural Health Clinic, Outpatient Clinics, Rehabilitation, and the Emergency Room are randomly sent surveys. Areas in need of improvement are identified and areas that are excelling are commended.

Identifying these processes and improving them helps to make better use of time, money, and resources. This in turn can improve employee morale and patient care.
