Tomorrow's HealthCare™ is a product of the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative and the Jewish Healthcare Foundation. The Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative (PRHI) is an independent catalyst for improving healthcare safety and quality in Southwestern Pennsylvania. It operates on the premise that dramatic quality improvement is the best cost-containment strategy for health care. PRHI is the first regional consortium of medical, business and civic leaders to address health care safety and quality improvement as a social and business imperative. Turning its own community into a demonstration lab, PRHI strives to accelerate improvement and set the pace for the nation. Its experiment reflects three principles:
- Healthcare is local. Federal policy changes alone cannot achieve needed reform.
- Those who work at the point of care develop quality and safety improvements that work and last.
- Continuous improvement in quality and safety requires the highest possible standard, namely perfection. To settle for less limits achievement.
