Quality Improvement in Health Care

“Good people, bad systems”

No amount of good will can outperform a poorly designed system. As stated by Deming, "a bad system will beat a good person every time."

What does health care reform look like? According to Dr Edwin Kruys, the secret ingredient is “building trust, connecting leaders.”

Inspired out of conversations with health care leaders at GPDU18, the vision for BridgeBuilders seems fairly straight forward. In fact, you’d think it already happens. To a large extent, it does.

However BridgeBuilders is about the more difficult conversations. Those times when despite our greatest intentions, the noble objectives of our health care leaders conflict with the inherent intricacies and constraints of systems, policies and processes.

The actions of our leaders can frustrate us when they are not consistent with our own views. However, they are often a reflection of the system that they must work within.

BridgeBuilders assumes that there is always a better way, and that through strategic conversation and a willingness to work together, we might discover it.
