Continually improving quality (CQI) is vitally important to physical therapy practices. Not only is it directly related to patient quality of care and your practice's longevity and success, it is key to your business' competitive edge. Take this course and explore best practices for developing effective, systematic, and ongoing CQI processes designed to help practice owners and administrators work smarter. Explore the perspectives of various stakeholders (e.g., owner, administrator, policy, payer, etc.), review a recent case study that illustrate how quickly (and painlessly) effective CQI pays for itself, and take away proven quality assessment and process tools that you can use right away.
