This article in BMJ Quality & Safety will likely be of interest to some Quorum users:
A few thoughts. It was interesting to me that the researchers found that "boards with high levels of QI maturity relied on their quality subcommittee to provide detailed scrutiny" given the Ontario context that every hospital board (and many other boards) has a quality subcommittee.
The short-term vs. long-term tension was also interesting, particularly given the resource constraints that make it difficult to invest in long-term QI.
And, as has been shown previously, clinical leadership was also noted as being very important.
