  • [Title] Total quality management and performance in substance abuse treatment centers.
  • OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship of organizational characteristics of substance abuse treatment centers with their use of quality management practices (total quality management [TQM]) and the contribution of TQM use to a center's provision of comprehensive care and to use of evidence-based treatment practices.
  • The key variables were three TQM practices, the provision of comprehensive treatment services, and the implementation of evidence-based treatment practices.
  • PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: In multivariate models, TQM practices were positively related to provision of comprehensive care and use of evidence-based practices.
  • A limited set of organizational characteristics predicted the use of TQM practices.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Substance abuse treatment centers' implementation of TQM processes may be positively related to the quality and cost-effectiveness of care provided.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: Clinical laboratories in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) need fundamental improvement because quality laboratory services are essential for the decision-making capacity of clinicians, health workers and public health authorities.
  • Our aim was to evaluate the quality and applicability of this accreditation scheme compared with international quality standards.
  • RESULTS: Although the content of the checklist covers all aspects of total quality management, it strongly prioritizes resource management activities.
  • We recommend identifying critical requirements for each tier of accreditation to assure a certain level of quality for each tier or instead using a pass/fail approach towards accreditation.
  • In addition, the checklist should include more questions for assessing proper management, ethics and continuous improvement to meet ISO 15189.

  • Six complications were detected.
  • However, no significant difference was detected between adults and pediatric age groups or between elective and emergency cases with respect to total hospital stay.
  • Various academic achievements in the same period and the pyramid of TQM-PPP are included.
  • Identifying the zone of practice of the individual consultant/health professional, designing audit tools for each, and accurate record keeping; using specific staff for data collection, entry, and analysis; and developing outcome evaluation techniques from patients and health care providers are the tools to achieve TQM-PPP.

  • [Title] The impact of critical total quality management practices on hospital performance in the ministry of health hospitals in saudi arabia.
  • Total Quality Management (TQM) offers a method for solving quality and patient safety problems and bringing significant improvement to hospital performance.
  • This research is carried out in an attempt to address this gap, exploring the impact of applying TQM practices on hospital performance in the Saudi Ministry of Health hospitals.
  • The response rate was 67.25% of the total questionnaires distributed.
  • The TQM practices used in the study were as follows: leadership, employee management, information analysis, training, customer focus, continuous improvement, process management, and supplier management.
  • The findings of the research show a significant positive correlation between the 8 practices of TQM and hospital performance with a correlation coefficient r value of 0.9 (P = .0001).
  • The study also reveals that Saudi hospitals are facing difficulties in engaging the clinical staff in their quality initiative.
  • Moreover, our findings show that accredited hospitals have significantly applied TQM practices more than unaccredited hospitals.

  • [Title] Knowledge, practice and faith on Total Quality Management principles among workers in the Health Care System: evidence from an Italian investigation.
  • BACKGROUND: The implementation of Total Quality Management (TQM) principles in the sanitary field, in order to be effective, requires a radical change in management practice as well as the organizational culture and its philosophy.
  • OBJECTIVES: This study surveys how well TQM principles are known and understood by health care professionals from the employees' point of view and the factors affecting it.
  • MEASURES: The Total Quality Test was used, a novel and quick instrument aimed at routine assessment of the penetration and interiorization of TQM principles within the health care structure.
  • RESULTS: Direct exposure to public, job role and time spent working within the same structure have been proved related to the penetration of TQM principles, whereas previous formative intervention did not prove to be associated with the penetration of TQM principles.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The implementation of a quick and simple instrument to monitor the TQM implementation highlighted several critical areas for intervention.

  • [Title] A total quality management approach to healthcare waste management in Namazi Hospital, Iran.
  • Medical waste management is a worldwide issue.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Namazi Hospital was selected as a study site with an aim to achieving a significant decrease in infectious waste and implementing a total quality management (TQM) method.
  • RESULTS: Before the introduction of the new guidelines and the new waste management concept, weight of total waste was 6.67 kg per occupied bed per day (kg/occupied bed/day), of which 73% was infectious and 27% non-infectious waste.
  • After intervention, total waste was reduced to 5.92 kg/occupied bed/day, of which infectious waste represented 61% and non-infectious waste 30%.
  • The implementation of a new waste management concept achieved a 26% reduction in infectious waste.
  • CONCLUSION: A structured waste management concept together with clear definitions and staff training will result in waste reduction, consequently leading to decreased expenditure in healthcare settings.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Obstacles to TQM success in health care systems.
  • PURPOSE: Many healthcare organisations have found it difficult to implement total quality management (TQM) successfully.
  • The aim of this paper is to explore the barriers to TQM successful implementation in the healthcare sector.
  • DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH: This paper reports a literature review exploring the major reasons for the failure of TQM programmes in healthcare organisations.
  • FINDINGS: TQM implementation and its impact depend heavily on the ability of managers to adopt and adapt its values and concepts in professional healthcare organisations.
  • Unsuccessful TQM efforts in healthcare organisations can be attributed to the strongly departmentalised, bureaucratic and hierarchical structure, professional autonomy, tensions between managers and professionals and the difficulties involved in evaluating healthcare processes and outcomes.
  • Other obstacles to TQM success include lack of consistent managers' and employees' commitment to and involvement in TQM implementation, poor leadership and management, lack of a quality-oriented culture, insufficient training, and inadequate resources.
  • PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: The findings of this article provide policy makers and managers with a practical understanding of the factors that are likely to obstruct TQM implementation in the healthcare sector.
  • ORIGINALITY/VALUE: Understanding the factors that obstruct TQM implementation would enable managers to develop more effective strategies for implementing TQM successfully in healthcare organisations.

  • PURPOSE: Despite the potential benefits of total quality management (TQM), many healthcare organisations encountered difficulties in its implementation.
  • The purpose of this paper is to explore the barriers to successful implementation of TQM in healthcare organisations of Iran.
  • In-depth interviews were conducted with TQM practitioners to explore TQM implementation obstacles in Iranian healthcare organisations.
  • In addition, this study involved survey-based research on the obstacles associated with successful TQM transformation.
  • FINDINGS: TQM implementation and its impact depend on the ability of managers to adopt and adapt its values and concepts in professional healthcare organisations.
  • Unsuccessful TQM efforts in Iranian healthcare organisations can be attributed to the non-holistic approach adopted in its implementation, inadequate knowledge of managers' about TQM implementation, frequent top management turnover, poor planning, vague and short-termed improvement goals, lack of consistent managers' and employees' commitment to and involvement in TQM implementation, lack of a corporate quality culture, lack of team orientation, lack of continuous education and training and lack of customer focus.
  • Human resource problems, cultural and strategic problems were the most important obstacles to TQM successful implementation, respectively.
  • PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Understanding the factors that are likely to obstruct TQM implementation would enable managers to develop more viable strategies for achieving business excellence.
  • ORIGINALITY/VALUE: Understanding the factors that are likely to obstruct TQM implementation will help organisations in planning better TQM models.

  • [Title] ServiceBlueprinting as a service management tool in radiology.
  • PURPOSE: To describe the ServiceBlueprint model as a suitable method of service management in clinical medicine using the example of the routine clinical setting of a radiological department.
  • The model could also be used for personnel management in that it helped to define the roles of staff members from different categories in the value-added process.
  • It served as a basis for the implementation of quality management systems according to Total Quality Management (TQM) and DIN-EN-ISO-9001:2000.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The ServiceBlueprint model is a service management concept that is also suitable to visualize medical service processes in routine clinical settings like in a radiology department and has a multifarious potential in process optimization, implementation of quality management systems, and human resources management.

  • [Title] The use of indicators to improve the quality of intensive care: theoretical aspects and experiences from the Dutch intensive care registry.
  • In the concept of total quality management that was originally developed in industry, the use of quality indicators is essential.
  • The implementation of quality indicators in the intensive care unit to improve the quality of care is a complex process.
  • This process can be described in seven subsequent steps of an indicator-based quality improvement (IBQI) cycle.
  • With this IBQI cycle, a continuous quality improvement can be achieved with the use of indicator data in a benchmark setting.
  • After the development of evidence-based indicators, a sense of urgency has to be created, registration should start, raw data must be analysed, feedback must be given, and interpretation and conclusions must be made, followed by a quality improvement plan.
  • They should be identified and addressed in a multifaceted quality improvement strategy.

  • [Title] Measuring the quality of therapeutic apheresis care in the pediatric intensive care unit.
  • Our goal was to measure the quality of care provided in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) during Therapeutic Apheresis (TA).
  • We then defined each step with a unique clinical indictor (CI) that represented the exact task we felt provided quality care.
  • We measured our performance in this process by the number of times we accomplished the CI vs. the total number of CIs that were to be performed.
  • The degree of compliance, with these clinical indicators, was analyzed and used as a metric for quality by calculating how close the process is running exactly as planned or "in control."
  • We then applied the theory of Total Quality Management (TQM) through our Design, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) model.
  • We have implemented TQM to increase compliance, thus control, of a highly complex and multidisciplinary Pediatric Intensive Care therapy.
  • We have shown a reproducible and scalable measure of quality for a complex clinical process in the PICU, without additional capital expenditure.

  • [Title] 'Therapeutic or Preventive Procedures' associated with 'Management Total Quality': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Therapeutic or Preventive Procedure' for 'management total quality'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Therapeutic or Preventive Procedure'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 21 publications, and group two 15300 publications.
  • Here are the top 10.

  • [Title] Determinants of quality management systems implementation in hospitals.
  • OBJECTIVE: To identify the problems and facilitating factors in the implementation of quality management system (QMS) in hospitals through a systematic review.
  • Using the thesaurus terms 'Total Quality Management' and 'Quality Assurance Health Care', combined with the term 'hospital' and 'implement*', we identified 533 publications.
  • A clear distribution of QMS function within the organizational structure is more important than establishing a formal quality structure.
  • In addition to management leadership, physician involvement also plays an important role in implementing QMS.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Six supporting and limiting factors determining QMS implementation are identified in this review.
  • These are the organization culture, design, leadership for quality, physician involvement, quality structure and technical competence.

  • [Title] [Quality management and safety culture in medicine: context and concepts].
  • The publication of the IOM report "To err is human: building a safer health system" in 1999 put spotlight on the primacy of the principle of primum non nocere and made patient safety a central topic of quality management.
  • While concepts of quality management have evolved along the lines of ISO and Total Quality Management over the last decades patient safety still has not got the same amount of attention (PubMed).
  • Considering these arguments the present paper aims at emphasizing the importance of an efficient culture of safety for patient safety and quality management in healthcare.
