How can healthcare organizations best excel? Most often they use the Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for Performing Excellence to improve their operations. But this method can take years to implement and achieve the desire results. Now, in The Executive Guide to Understanding and Implementing Baldrige in Healthcare: Evidence-Based Excellence®, Glenn Bodinson and Kay Kendall introduce a new approach, Evidence-Based Excellence® which can save time, money, and help organizations reach peak performances. The authors have worked with hundreds of applicants on the Performance Excellence journey, including 15 Baldrige Award recipients and 35 state level award winners. Identifying a set of common best practices, this book identifies what works and what doesn't. From role model strategies to assessments, processes, and best practices, the approach has proven effective whether an organization is just starting out, is on its way to success, or is accomplished in Performance Excellence. Written for healthcare leaders, The Executive Guide to Understanding and Implementing Baldrige in Healthcare focuses on nine essential systems that cut across the seven categories of Baldrige Criteria.
