Driving System-wide quality improvement

Life QI Quality Improvement Tool

Health Innovation Manchester supports a system-wide approach to driving quality and improvement and offers a free 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 Life QI 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.

More than 140 people and organisations working on service improvement projects have already signed up to the Life QI tool through Health Innovation Manchester and free licences are still available.

You can find out more about Life QI on the Life QI site.  

Health Innovation Manchester is funding FREE licences for any GM colleagues working on health and social care quality and patient safety improvement projects.
