• Quality Improvement

    Our History

    At AAMC, we created the Center for Healthcare Improvement in September 2012. Barry Meisenberg, MD, medical director of the DeCesaris Cancer Institute, acted as the center’s founding director and also serves as Chair of Quality Improvement and Healthcare Systems Research.

    Our Goals

    We aim to implement innovations that enhance patient safety and quality of care throughout our growing health system.

    By working with other quality committees, the Center for Healthcare Improvement coordinates all patient safety initiatives. We analyze high-risk medications and procedures, and implement practices shown to improve their safety.
