Quality Improvement Methods

This website provides information on some of the more widely used quality improvement (QI) methods or tools that a QUERI researcher may find useful. The methods are listed in alphabetical order by the most common name used in healthcare. Unique aspects of certain situations may be helped by any of these QI methods.

Further information will be needed to implement any of these methods but this website can be used as a starting point. The intent here is to give the researcher the basic idea and describe common uses of these methods. The exact approach for using the method varies by the practitioner using them or the institution where they are used.
