The 2024 KHC Summit on Quality will feature a virtual Storyboard Showcase. We invite you to submit your organization’s successful quality improvement projects to be part of the showcase. Your Storyboard should describe a quality improvement project started or completed in the past year. Attendees to the 2024 Summit on Quality will use a QR code to download and view storyboards that are part of the showcase in addition to viewing the storyboards during the showcase session at the Summit.

The 2024 Leadership in Quality Awards will be selected from Storyboard Showcase. Projects will be scored by a third-party organization. Two awards will be announced during the Summit:

Leadership in Quality Award: Hospitals with greater than 25 beds, Academic Hospitals or Teaching institutions, Large Hospitals, Residency Programs, FQHCs, Clinics with more than 15 or more providers

Small or Rural Leadership in Quality Award: Eligible applicants for this category are CAH Hospitals, Hospitals with 25 or fewer beds, RHCs, Small practices with fewer than 15 providers or small rural practices.

KHC is particularly interested in projects on the following topics, but we welcome Storyboards on other topics as well:

  • Establishing a culture of safety
  • Improving patient safety (reducing healthcare acquired conditions/infections, reducing preventable conditions, medication safety, risk reduction, etc.)
  • Improving care transitions (e.g., readmissions, reduction in fragmentation of care)
  • Population health improvement and collaborations with community
  • Reducing and Preventing Infections/Antimicrobial Stewardship
  • Managing Chronic Disease

Projects will be scored by a third-party organization, based on the following criteria:

  1. Was the aim of the project clear?
  2. Was the project well designed?
  3. Were the interventions clearly described?
  4. What were the results of the project?
  5. Did the project result in an improvement?
  6. How did these results impact the quality or safety of patient care in your organization as a result of this project?
