Mission Statement

The Hospital Quality Committee, comprised of CHA members, advises the CHA Board of Trustees regarding quality of patient care and patient safety issues, transparency, public reporting, member needs, policy development, research methodologies, benchmarking, and legislative and regulatory needs. The Committee is a reliable, dynamic source of knowledge and support for the on-going efforts to improve patient safety and health care delivery in California.

The purpose of the Committee is to work collaboratively with the Regional Associations and CHA public advocacy to increase public awareness of hospital efforts and successes to improve hospital quality patient care and patient safety. It also monitors and informs the membership on best practices, valid quality initiatives, and hospital quality measures and public reporting of quality data. The Committee serves as a forum for CHA members to receive and exchange information regarding hospital quality and patient safety, adopt policies and positions, guide management, adopt strategies and serve as the primary public policy arm of CHA for quality and patient safety issues.

The Committee is currently governed by 80 members who meet bi-monthly to ensure acceleration of quality improvement in California hospitals through education, collaboration and innovation.
