HealthLeaders Magazine;Feb2011, Vol. 14 Issue 2, p31
The article focuses on quality improvement in the healthcare industry based on the 2011 HealthLeaders Media Industry Survey. Findings revealed that 58% of the respondents claimed that quality and patient safety is among their organization's top three priorities. However, 64% of the polled healthcare leaders admitted that the health care reform in the U.S. has weakened the morale of their organization. Dr. David J. Shulkin of Morristown Memorial Hospital explained that the bill targets reduced spending and hospital executives became focused on that issue.
