Integrating strategic planning and quality management in a multi-institutional system.

Author information

  • 1Sisters of Providence Health System, Seattle, WA.


Integrating total quality management (TQM) into the strategic planning process of a multi-institutional health system is a high priority. Through the strategic plan, system leadership gives TQM concepts prominence and visibility and provides strategic directions for their implementation. The Sisters of Providence Health System recently developed an approach to integrating TQM into its System Strategic Plan. Implementation priorities include more formalized direction for TQM by the system board, intensive TQM educational programs, greater consistency of quality information and outcome measures, and more focused attention to patient needs.
