Program OverviewClinical quality and patient safety are more important than ever in today’s health-care environment, which is distinguished by increased challenges, competition, and regulation—not to mention ever-increasing expenses.Obviously, every physician and medical institution strives for the best possible clinical outcomes.However, because medical errors can result in a tarnished reputation, lawsuits, and the inability to attract and retain top people, it is critical for leaders around the world to create continuous improvement initiatives in order to reach the highest standards of care.The Safety, Quality, Informatics, and Leadership (SQIL) program at Harvard Medical School was created to assist leaders in making positive changes by teaching them how to turn patient data into practical, transformable knowledge.The following are the components of this one-year certificate program:Three multi-day sessions are planned (two virtual, one held in Boston)Pre-recorded lectures and dynamic live webinarsCapstone project in which students devise a remedy to an issue in their local institution or practiceParticipants will go away with the skills and knowledge they need to better the system as a whole, as well as a global network of peers confronting similar issues.
