Abstract

Brigham and Women's Hospital initiated a study of the quality of care centering on self-reporting of potential medical injuries by providers. The goal of the study is to decrease the incidence of such injuries through a continuous quality methodology that integrates providers into the identification phase and incorporates all hospital employees in the development of new practices. This article provides an overview of the investigation methodology and discusses the conceptual relationships between clinical epidemiological analyses and industrial quality improvement.
