STEEEP® Quality Journey Assessment

Fields marked with an * are required

 
Achieving health care that is safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable and patient centered (STEEEP) is not an endpoint, but a journey. This journey requires a commitment to quality improvement (QI) from the highest levels of leadership combined with the interdependent development of several key components of health care delivery: Administration and Governance, Clinical Leadership, Program Development, Data Analytics, and Reputation. This assessment will help you identify where you are in your STEEEP Quality Journey and will indicate areas for improvement.

  • Do performance measurements and the organization's reward system encourage the right behaviors as they relate to QI?
