Delivering quality care within our hospitals can be greatly enhanced through the use of new approaches to governance of healthcare systems using measurement of safety, quality indicators, compliance and patient outcomes.

Metrixcare Clinical Director Dr Chris Farmer will be delivering a presentation titled ‘Balancing costs and quality of care in the pursuit of value’ at the Delivering Quality of Care in Hospitals conference to be held in Brisbane 22-24 March 2017.

Dr Farmer says that “As hospital managers we need to re-conceptualise our traditional approaches to quality management that can lock us into thinking about things like “incidents”, when in reality we deal with a much broader definition of harm, prevalence and exposure on a daily basis. A key challenge is how do we innovate in the ways we govern our healthcare services for quality and cost improvement for better value?”
