Quality Management System
In Week 1: Assignment 2, you used an episode of care. This week, you will choose an organization from that episode and apply the concepts of a quality management system to it. (If the episode of care involved more than one organization, select just one.)
The basic healthcare quality management system consists of four components: inputs, conversion process, outputs, and feedback. Referring to the organization in the episode of care, provide at least four examples of each system component.
How does this answer compare to last week’s assignment where you applied the components of a quality management system to the S-P-O model? Was it easier to apply the concepts to one over the other? Which one better helps you to understand quality management? Why?
Present your analysis in a 2-page paper. Format your paper in APA style.
