With changing culture and healthcare reform, we are moving from a physician/provider centered focus to a customer (patient) centered focus, which means we have to change how we operate in the various functions of healthcare environments, especially in Quality Management. Quality Management, a key function in healthcare delivery, has been changing over the past couple of years. It is important that one understands the role of the 4 pillars of Quality Management and how they fit into the healthcare sector.
