Hospitals, health systems to benefit from The Quality Group's Six Sigma and other performance management solutions

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, has struck an exclusive partnership with The Quality Group (TQG), a leader in blended online learning solutions for process improvement.

Elsevier will market and distribute TQG's customized process improvement (Lean Six Sigma) training solution for health care professionals, The Health Care Series. The newly developed blended e-Learning series features condensed class times and highly customized online training modules designed to meet the needs of the health care workforce.

"The Quality Group's customized, best-of-class blended eLearning solutions have been utilized by leading global corporations and academic institutions since 1992," said Rob Stewart, president and CEO of TQG. "Our partnership with Elsevier will help bring our longtime experience with lean, Six Sigma process improvement to hospitals and healthcare institutions that are striving to improve patient care and their processes."

Elsevier's exclusive partnership with TQG was unveiled at the 10th Annual Lean, Six Sigma and Business Improvement in Healthcare Summit in New Orleans earlier in May.

"Our exclusive partnership with TQG represents another expansion of Elsevier's leadership in eLearning and performance management for healthcare," said John Schrefer, president of Elsevier / MC Strategies, a business unit of Elsevier Clinical Decision Support. "Healthcare institutions are under a great deal of pressure to boost quality and improve patient care, and TQG's blend of learning content fits well with our strategy to continue strengthening and deepening our eLearning solutions for these institutions."

To customize the training for the health care worker, TQG assembled a diverse team of industry experts, including Jennifer Ralston, TQG Lean Six Sigma Expert and the former deployment leader for American Red Cross Biomedical Services and Kathy Price, current Director of Clinical Effectiveness at Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System.
