Celebrating National Healthcare Quality Week

October 19, 2020

National Healthcare Quality Week, sponsored by the National Association for Healthcare Quality, is dedicated to celebrating the contributions that professionals have made in the field and bringing greater awareness to the profession of health care quality.

This year’s observance takes place during October 18–24, and highlights the influence of clinical and non-clinical professionals in improving health care delivery systems, achieving improved patient care outcomes, and increasing patient, family, and health care provider satisfaction. National Healthcare Quality Week also is the time to show your appreciation for health care quality professionals in your organization and your community.

Pennsylvania’s hospital community is committed to continuously improving upon the excellent care it delivers to patients across the commonwealth. HAP is supporting this mission through a variety of working groups, collaboratives, and learning opportunities.

Additionally, during HAP’s annual Patient Safety and Quality Symposium held during September, clinical leaders from across Pennsylvania came together to share best practices, emerging trends, and research to help improve health care outcomes.
