Chou AF, Doebbeling BN, Fleming B, Yano EM. Identifying organizational dimensions underlying the implementation of quality improvement efforts in VHA. Paper presented at: VA HSR&D National Meeting; 2008 Feb 15; Baltimore, MD.
Systematic implementation of quality improvement (QI) practices has been associated with better clinical outcomes. Nevertheless, implementation of these efforts cannot succeed without sufficient and appropriate organizational support and resources. Using a resource-based view, we sought to identify organizational domains and factors that may facilitate institutional planning, QI design and implementation, program evaluation, and research.
