Along with Emory Healthcare, which is the clinical arm of the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center of Emory University, Emory benefits from a close working relationship with the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Grady Memorial Hospital.
The Academy was formed in 2007 to further the mission of Emory Healthcare and to help fulfill our quality promise to patients of impeccable outcomes, delivered safely, with excellent service. This is a 2-day course designed to give health care leaders an introduction to quality improvement.
Also part of the Academy, this 12-day course, divided into 3-day sessions monthly for 4 months, is designed to develop local quality improvement leaders who are capable of independently planning and conducting improvement in their areas and serving as resources to others.
Emory Healthcare seeks to foster an environment of teamwork and mutual respect. The Pledge specifies the set of actions and behaviors necessary to create this environment and serves as a tangible means by which physicians and staff can hold each other accountable.
Our mission "To Serve Humanity by Improving Health" defines our core purpose and why we exist. Our core purpose drives our Quality Promise to the community we serve. This model is an approach to transforming care that is aimed at redefining and continuously improving the experience our patients, their families and visitors, and our staff and physicians have across Emory Healthcare.
The Healthcare Innovation Program (HIP) is an interactive network among members of the Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute (ACTSI) that provides information, resources, and community connectivity to support and enhance innovation in healthcare research, education, and service.
