The Six Domains of Health Care Quality

Safe | Effective | Patient-Centered | Timely | Efficient | Equitable

At Estes Park Health, we consider The Six Domains of Health Care Quality to be our guiding principles, and carefully evaluate the care and services we provide against these principles.  Our Quality Dashboard and Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems’ (HCAHPS) Patient Safety Survey measures our performance and provides us with information on how we are doing in these areas.

All Departments and services at Estes Park Health participate in Quality Management and we are expanding our knowledge and application of Quality Management Principles every day!

Patient Safety

The World Health Organization defines Patient Safety as the prevention of errors and adverse effects impacting patients which are associated with, or result from, the delivery of healthcare.  At Estes Park Health every employee is responsible for ensuring patient safety and overall quality creating an environment where everyone participates in our mission – “To make a positive difference in the health and wellbeing of all we serve.”
