Abstract

Current healthcare quality improvement measures were examined with the growing movement towards implementing patient-and family-centered care (PFCC) in hospitals and the effects the movement has on quality of care. The transitions of three hospitals into healthcare organizations that implement PFCC throughout their settings were analyzed to determine the effect PFCC has on a hospital’s quality of care. The analysis shows that the implementation of PFCC initiatives throughout a hospital can significantly improve quality of care and is instrumental in reforming the healthcare system while enabling hospitals to profit and meet mandated regulations. The need for quality improvement in the delivery of care has been recognized as an issue of public health significance and an increasing number of organizations are taking measures to advance improvements.
