Quality, Safety and Accreditation

At Johns Hopkins, health care quality and patient safety is more than an imperative — it’s a science. At the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, we develop and test solutions in safety and quality improvement that can be shared throughout the world.

Our hospital accreditation preparation programs further demonstrate our commitment to patient safety and quality. We have designed and implemented large-scale quality and safety improvement projects that have saved lives, reduced suffering and averted health care spending. By leveraging the latest health care data and technology, we find solutions, optimize processes and deliver customer-centric experiences that improve patient engagement, satisfaction and quality of care.
