Quality Improvement management tool – free to all Innovation Champions
To support your role in sharing best practice and promoting a culture of innovation we would like to bring one of our current initiatives to your attention.
Quality Improvement …………. Good in theory, but seems a lot of work to document and measure?
Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network is able to help you!
As part of our role in promoting adoption and spread of innovation at pace and scale we have purchased a licence for the Life QI system. This means it is now free for all NHS organisations in Yorkshire and Humber to use.
Everything you need!
The Life QI system is an online tool for recording, analysing and presenting Quality Improvement projects and programmes by using the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI) method of Quality Improvement. The system provides the means to demonstrate the impact of QI programmes, saving time and cost of local data gathering and analysis (estimated to be £6,000 per project per year).
The Life QI System makes it easy for teams to run QI projects and for organisations to report on QI activity. It takes away the hard work and helps you to clarify drivers for change, think about how you measure changes and generates SPC (Statistical Process Control) charts for you. It also facilitates reporting, sharing and collaboration on projects and programmes.
If you are familiar with the approach to quality improvement and want an easy way to record and monitor your projects, please click this link to sign up to use Life QI https://lifeqisystem.com and enter your email into the sign up box. You can have as many users from your organisation as you need.
If you want help with using Life QI, we offer a free half day workshop to work with you to set up at least one QI project. We will work with you to identify the drivers for a project, help you decide what the measures should be and set up your first PDSA cycle. If you are interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
The Life QI system is tried and tested and currently being used by over 450 NHS organisations nationwide, including GP practices, Mental Health, Ambulance, Acute and Community Trusts.
