Safety, Quality, Informatics and Leadership | Harvard University

In today’s health care environment, marked by increased challenges, competition and regulation—not to mention ever-rising costs—issues of clinical quality and patient safety take on even greater importance than before. Obviously, every practitioner and every medical institution works toward only the best clinical outcomes. But because medical errors can lead to damaged reputation, exposure to lawsuits and an inability to attract and retain top talent, it is essential for leaders around the world to implement programs of continuous improvement to achieve the highest standards of care.

The goal of the Safety, Quality, Informatics and Leadership program is to provide fundamental knowledge in four key, interrelated areas: clinical quality, patient safety, quantitative informatics and robust leadership. Participants will learn how to apply analytic tools to raw data to reveal powerful insights that can be applied to quality and safety practices and policies—and then implement these learnings throughout the organization.

This program consists of: Three multi-day workshops (two virtual, one held in Boston), dynamic live webinars and pre-recorded lectures and a capstone project in which students devise a solution to a problem in their home institution or practice. Participants will emerge with the tools and knowledge needed to drive system-wide improvement, as well as a global network of peers facing the same challenges.

Participants will be eligible for Associate Alumni status upon successful completion of the program. Early tuition and need-based tuition reductions may be available.
