Baldrige Award

Baldrige Award Wednesday, December 8, 2010

This issue’s featured Innovations were developed by organizations that are past recipients of an award from the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, a public-private partnership led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Congress created the Baldrige National Quality Award in 1987 to promote excellence in organizational performance. Although this Presidential Award is not given for innovation or specific services, the Innovations featured here represent the work of organizations previously recognized as health care performance leaders by the Baldrige program.

The featured QualityTools provide links to Baldrige program resources and tools that can assist health care organizations in the pursuit of performance excellence.
