Our history. The Center for Healthcare Improvement (CHI) was created in September 2012. Barry Meisenberg, MD, medical director of the DeCesaris Cancer Institute, was named as CHI’s founding director and also  serves as Chair of Quality Improvement and Healthcare Systems Research.

Our goals. The overarching goal is to rapidly implement innovations that enhance patient safety and quality of care throughout AAMC’s growing system of care.

Targeting projects and initiatives addressing high-risk medications and procedures, the CHI acts a coordinator for patient safety initiatives. Working with the existing regulatory and quality committees, the CHI has responsibility for implementing  practices shown to improve safety and reduce waste. Additionally, CHI plays a key role in promoting initiatives aimed at reducing harm associated with care in a complex medical environment.
