In recent years, our nation has seen a dramatic shift in best practices for our health care system. Breakthroughs in research, the way care is delivered, and how we deploy the skills of our workforce have carved out a roadmap to achieve improved outcomes for patients at lower cost.
Developing a workforce ready to deliver coordinated, comprehensive, high quality care was identified as a top concern among health care providers and unions who contribute to PQC.
PQC’s commitment to workforce transformation aims to improve quality, patient outcomes, and cost-effectiveness through labor-management collaboration.
Much of the national discussion on the readiness of our nation’s health care system to expand and improve the delivery of care has focused on the readiness of our physician and nursing workforce. PQC seeks to broaden the dialogue to include the service, professional, and technical workers who are essential to the patient care team.
Culture of Health
The "Culture of Health" initiativestrives to have the healthcare workforce serve as a model of healthy lifestyles for the rest of the country. Members of PQC are leveraging their positions as employers, providers and workforce leaders to encourage and assist the healthcare workforce to join together to become a model of personal health for the nation.
Through the Culture of Health, PQC has taken on a new role: becoming ambassadors of not only excellent clinical health, but also excellent personal health.
