The purpose of this paper is to investigate quality improvement in health care and the manner in which it is presented to the audience. We will look at two methods of "quality improvement" reporting, which are public and private. Both of these methods are presented in a different manner and with different intended audiences. We will also look at patient centered care; which involves the patient's views and concepts, the inherent problems and benefits of this method. We will hope to spread light on how allowing the patients, and the patients' family to interact and participate in the health care process will effect quality improvement. Also, we will see which of the patients benefit the most from this method. Health care staff has a deep impact on "quality improvement." This paper will take a deeper look into how the attitudes of the Health care staff influence quality improvement. Within health care, the staff is responsible for the method of modality delivery. A question will be posed within this paper to see if changes in the thought process, and a shift from industrial medicine to a more nurturing, positive method might increase the patient's chances for recovery, and enhance the facilities' overall "quality improvement."
According to the Oxford Dictionary, quality is defined as "the standard of something as measured against other things of a similar kind," and improvement is defined by "a thing that makes something better or is better than something else." In this paper, the author will be examining, measuring and comparing the standard of health care in the United States in both the public and private sectors.
