Improving Hospital Quality Through Leadership Assessment and Intervention


Hospital leadership--including governing boards, chief executive officers, and senior management--can have strong influence on organizational performance. Soon, hospitals will have a new validated instrument to formally assess the effectiveness of their leadership in improving quality of care--the Hospital Leadership and Quality Assessment Tool. This project will use the new tool to collect baseline information on hospital leadership performance, and then work with the Medicare Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs) to develop and implement a technical assistance protocol for improving leadership at low-performing hospitals. An evaluation will determine whether hospitals implementing the protocol improved their performance on the leadership assessment as well as on quality-of-care measures. The QIOs will help disseminate the assessment tool and implement the intervention protocol to hospitals nationwide.
