Dr. David Nash is the founding Dean of the Jefferson
School of Population Health in 2008 and offered four different ingenious programs
that are intended to improve healthcare leaders for the future. These programs
that Nash created are the Masters Programs in Public Health, Healthcare Quality
and Safety, Health Policy, and Applied Health Economics. As a well-known national
leader, Dr. Nash helped to alter the healthcare workplace to be able to be
accountable and self-evident of all outcomes. The structure-process-outcome
paradigm, known as Donabedian’s health care quality model, is used in
healthcare organizations for analyzing health care quality by concentrating on
improving the structure of care, improving clinical processes, and improving the
patient outcome. Dr. Nash identified the weaknesses in the
structure-process-outcome model and created an updated model focusing on the
skills and data that is vital for quality management theory, medical practice
tools and health outcomes which is known as The Three Faces of Quality. Nash established
the Three Faces of Quality to supply an outline for quality improvement in
health care. The quality management theory stresses the need for health care
workers to seek quality improvement to comprehend the forms of knowledge that comprise
of statistics. Medical practice tools are a set of tools to be able to document
how care is provided to patients, present comparisons to other providers, and provide
information to help with medical decision making. The ideal objective of medical
practice tools is to administer physicians with information to clarify and
guide the health care delivery process. Lastly, outcomes management is a system
to monitor and provide health care treatment. This could result in decreasing
the length of stay, decreasing patients’ healthcare costs, and improving
overall clinical patient outcomes.
