Take 5: The ROI on RPI®

10/26/2017 11:14:00 AM

Robust Process Improvement®, commonly referred to as RPI®, uses data to inform decisions and improve performance. When applied to health care, it can make a dramatic difference in the quality of care you can provide for your patients. We, at The Joint Commission, believe so thoroughly in the value of RPI® in health care that we created the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare. This aspect of The Joint Commission enterprise is committed to tackling the toughest safety and quality concerns in health care, using the proven methodology of RPI®. The Center also partners with all types of health care organizations to build their own self-sustaining RPI® programs.

David Grazman, Center Business Development director, discusses return on investment associated with using RPI®. [7:03]
