Abstract

Communication of a continuous improvement program in a large medical center was assessed using a formal benchmarking process with four non-health care organizations. Results indicated that continuous improvement must be integrated with the corporate strategic plan, must focus on customer satisfaction, and have active leadership support. A common framework should link different continuous improvement methodologies. Ongoing, open, multimedia two-way communication is required. Continuous improvement activities need to be integrated into all employees' daily work.
