Hospital Campain Anti-Bug 2000 as Leverage for Promoting Continuous Quality Improvement

    Summary

    The Management of a 750-bed tertiary care university hospital that serves the Jerusalem area and nationwide referrals initiated a total overhaul of all its supporting systems. This program, with parallel contingency plans, ensured a smooth transition of all computer-depended and othe services into the year 2000. Because this extraordinary project proved successful, its outcomes are noe being utilized as a unique impetus for implementation of hospital-wide continuous quality improvement programs. This paper reports how the established QI procedures, which were introduced also during the campaign, are now being activated from the baseline of those outcomes that have provided absolute efficacy in all hospital activities. The success of the campaign was achieved through the total involvement of all staff. This involvement was enhanced by the popular appeal of the dramatic deadline of the date 2000, as well as by focusing attention on personnel dynamics. Strategies for sustaining the momentum must be considered.
