EQuIP Global (Enable Quality, Improve Patient Care) is partnering with medical systems in low-resource environments to grow their knowledge and skills to transform local care delivery processes to deliver efficient, equitable, high quality care.
Stanford Medicine’s EQuIP Global (Enable Quality, Improve Patient Care) is a unique collaborative program that teaches quality improvement (QI) methodology to medical teams practicing in low-resource environments in order to empower them to transform local health care delivery. Using evidence-based QI methods, EQuIP Global assembles diverse, cross-disciplinary teams to address inefficiencies and unique problems in complex healthcare environments around the world.
EQuIP Global was started after a multi-year global learning collaborative led by Stanford Medicine in India from 2017-2020. After a few years of learning with institutions across the US, Australia, and India, India was able to build local quality improvement capacity in 10+ hospitals, enhancing patient care delivery for thousands of patients. They now function under a country-wide improvement hub called EQuIP India. Our name and mission was inspired by what India was able to accomplish.
It is our intent to work with global partners to grow their own local improvement capability. We have discovered effective methods for applying quality improvement tools and creating a learning environment where clinical leaders can redesign how care is delivered in their local areas. With over 3-years of case study examples spanning the globe, we have developed a proven model that delivers quantifiable results in improving patient outcomes and engaging local leaders.Contact EQuIP
