AHRQ Report Provides High Performance Work Practices to Maximize Quality

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has released a report describing how healthcare entities can attract, hire, develop, and retain staff members who can contribute to higher healthcare quality. The report, titled Using Workforce Practices to Drive Quality Improvement, provides four high-performance work practice (HPWP) models that can be implemented in a facility.

The HPWPs focus on practices such as rewarding performance, providing career development opportunities, aligned decision-making, and ensuring that leaders are developed to carry out an organization's goals and mission.
