System Performance Improvement Committee

System Performance Improvement Committee – Alan Tyroch (Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center) – Chair

The SPI Committee, chaired by a physician, has the authority and responsibility to monitor identified performance improvement indicators through, but not limited to case reviews, as it relates to the quality of patient care.  The committee makes recommendations to the Board regarding system enhancement and/or improvements.  Inter-local liaison committees may be formed to provide comprehensive review of issues with greater local participation.

Information/inquiries may originate at either the System Performance Improvement Committee or the liaison committee.  Global review of data and committee initiatives will be reflected in the minutes of the System Performance Improvement Committee.

Case Review is the specific assessment, discussion, and measurement of an identified process or procedure with the intent to validate or amend the desired output through efficiency or effectiveness of a specific practice or procedure.
