Life QI

Driving System-wide quality improvement

Health Innovation Manchester supports a system-wide approach to driving quality and improvement and offers access to a tool to health and social care organisations across Greater Manchester.

Life QI is a web based platform designed to assist front line staff running quality and safety improvement projects and offers an opportunity to connect with a community across the country to share best practice

The tool, developed as part of the Patient Safety Collaborative in partnership with SeeData, supports frontline NHS and social care teams to plan, monitor and report progress of their safety and quality improvement projects.

The flexible application contains tools to help improvement work and makes it easy to see progress. It allows teams to create driver diagrams, conduct “Plan, Do, Study, Act” (PSDA) cycles and visualise results through charts, as well as creating a bank of QI projects which can be shared.

Users can also connect to a QI community of practice across the country, encouraging collaboration with teams working on similar challenges.

Over the last two years, Health Innovation Manchester and the Greater Manchester and Eastern Cheshire Patient Safety Collaborative have been pleased to offer the system at no cost for health and care organisations in our region. Through this partnership with Life QI, we have helped in the testing, development and spread of this highly-regarded quality improvement system.

Having supported spread across the AHSN network, we are now moving to a new, “Supporter” model of delivery. Organisations with less than 50 users, will be able to access Life QI free of charge. Organisations with more than 50 users, will be able to access it at a heavily discounted cost to the organisation. These discussions will happen with HInM/GMECPSC and Life QI to ensure as seamless a transition as possible.
