In AY21-22, the DOM Quality Improvement, Morbidity & Mortality Steering (QIMMS) Committee rebranded itself as the DOM Quality Council. The change was made as we welcomed our new DOM Chair of Medicine, Dr. Vineet Chopra, who wanted to create a group of designated representatives from each of the 13 clinical DOM Divisions responsible for DOM- and Division-based outcomes. This was done to achieve goals set in the UCH/CUSOM Quality & Safety Performance Metrics for AY21-22.
For AY23-24, the DOM Quality Council welcomes the newly appointed Divisional Directors of Quality & Patient Safety. As a member of the DOM Quality Council, these new Directors will support the quality enterprise of their Divisions and Department by improving key quality, value, safety and efficiency outcomes by advancing models of high-quality care among faculty. This will be accomplished by designing Division-level projects addressing a gap in quality performance. Additionally, the Directors will be responsible for ensuring their Division meets the UCH/CUSOM Quality & Safety Performance Metrics for AY23-24.
