This is a very interesting website from the NHS Evidence that is focused in the QIPP (Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention) initiative in the UK.
In the NHS Evidence – QIPP website you can access “real examples of how staff are improving quality and productivity across the NHS“.
“The aim of the NHS Evidence – QIPP collection is to provoke thoughts, ideas and discussions about changes that can be made locally in the NHS”
“There are lots of really powerful examples around of things we can do to improve quality while improving productivity.”
David Nicholson, NHS Chief Executive
Opportunistic screening by pulse palpation of patients over 65 has been used in 18 regions to improve detection of atrial fibrillation. Quality is improved by the optimal treatment of patients with atrial fibrillation reducing risk of stroke. Productivity is increased by the reduction in costs associated with stroke and its complications.
