    Description:

    This text draws on the experiences of high-performing and Malcolm Baldrige Award-winning organizations. It describes the two key drivers of success: (1) a culture of empowerment and responsive leadership that promotes teamwork among physicians, nurses, and (2) other staff and a system for continuous improvement that emphasizes process analysis, negotiated goal setting, measurement, benchmarking, and rewards. This edition also includes: a new chapter on building a culture of shared values, empowerment, communication, and service excellence; a new chapter on the organizational infrastructure that sustains continuous improvement; strategies for building clinical processes that delight not only physicians and nurses with effective protocols but also patients with responsive, individualized care; best practices for various operational functions, including comprehensive performance measures and organizational models; strategies for retaining and increasing the contribution of clinical and administrative staff; and reader-friendly aids, such as on-the-page definitions of terminology, synopses of chapter contents, and questions for reflection or discussion.
