Because of our reputation for health care quality and safety, the University of Michigan Health System has been asked to lead and participate in several quality and safety programs in the state of Michigan and across the U.S.
These programs have resulted in dramatic, positive results, such as:
- a decrease in readmissions following bariatric surgery by 35%
- a 29% reduction in strokes or mini-strokes during coronary angioplasty
- improved preventive and chronic care
- and much more.
In fact, the quality and safety programs we have led in Michigan have proved to be examples for the rest of the country.
We continue to seek ways in which to improve quality and safety for all patients – in Michigan, our nation and the entire world.
