  • The UMMC Quality Improvement Student Interest Group

    The UMMC Quality Improvement Student Interest Group (UMMC QI-SIG) is a recently developed (January 2013) inter-professional chapter of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Open School for Health Professionals.  We are here to involve students from the various schools of Health Professions at UMMC to improve healthcare and patient safety at Mississippi's only academic medical center.  We work directly with the UMMC office of Quality/Patient Safety, whom we cannot thank enough for their resources and support.

    What is Quality Improvement?

    "...the combined and unceasing efforts of everyone--healthcare professionals, patients and their families, researchers, payers, planners and educators--to make the changes that will lead to better patient outcomes (health), better system performance (care), and better professional development (learning)."
