QI Data For You

From: Sienna Pope, Director of Medical Support Services

To: Anthony Roman

Anthony,

Hi! I heard through word of mouth that you were looking for some possible areas of improvement in the hospital. I’ve got some data from SAMC’s in-home hospice program that might be useful.

I realize that you may not be familiar with the hospice program, so I also set up some meetings with a few people with a stake in the program. I’m hoping they can give you some context for the data you’re looking at.

Let me know if you need anything!

Sienna Pope,
Director of Medical Support Services

QI Data For You

From: Sienna Pope, Director of Medical Support Services

To: Anthony Roman

I hope you got what you needed from Jackie, David, Roger, and Owen. Can you send me an email and let me know what your initial thoughts are? It doesn’t have to be anything formal, just your ideas about what the data suggest, and whether there are any QI initiatives that you would recommend based on what you’re seeing. If there are, make sure you explain how the initiatives you recommend might affect the different roles on the hospice team.

Thanks!
