National Healthcare Quality Week Logo

Healthcare Quality Week (HQW), brought to you by National Association for Healthcare Quality (NAHQ), is the week dedicated to celebrating the contributions professionals have made to improve healthcare quality. It also gives us an opportunity to bring greater awareness to the profession of healthcare quality.

“Healthcare is at an inflection point as we transition towards value. We need strong, committed leadership to achieve the goals of better patient care, safer care and better financial outcomes. Healthcare quality professionals are in one of the best seats in the house as they have a ‘birds eye view’ into the healthcare system which gives them the ability to support healthcare in ways that very few other professionals can.” Stephanie Mercado, NAHQ CEO and Executive Director.

This year’s celebration takes place October 20-26. Throughout the week, let’s bring greater awareness to the profession of Healthcare Quality and celebrate and acknowledge the work of healthcare quality professionals in our organizations and communities.

Thanks to all the quality professionals at the Great Plains Quality Innovation Network and all of our partners for your efforts to continually make care better for our communities and loved ones. We celebrate you!!!
