Raison d’etre of Continual Improvement Program in a Hospital

NO hospital management system, whether the overall system, that means, hospital-wide, or the system at the department level, is EVER perfect. I repeat, NO hospital management system is EVER perfect.

Sad to say, this is a factual statement, NO hospital management system is EVER perfect!

If you hear this reality, you may react by saying what the heck, just have a management system, good or bad, as long as you have one. Why burden or kill yourself in trying to make it perfect! It is impossible anyway.

Do all of you or us in the hospital administration and workforce want to adopt this stance?

Or do you or we, despite knowing that NO hospital management system is EVER perfect, want to continually improve the system to achieve even just up to 90% perfection, if not, near-perfection?

Targeting at least 90% perfection, if NOT near perfection, is the stance all of you and us should adopt as we owe this to our patient-clients, physician-clients and to our colleagues in the hospital.

We have to adopt this stance if we want to remain viable as a hospital up to100 years, if not forever.

This is the raison d’etre of a continual improvement program in the hospital.
