Letter: Leadership change at KHC
Ten years ago this month, I was interviewing for a role at a startup, provider-led organization focused on quality as envisioned by the Kansas Medical Society (KMS) and the Kansas Hospital Association (KHA). Health care was in the midst of significant change and at the heart of those discussions were important conversations around improving quality, safety, and value. KMS and KHA—two organizations committed to improving health care in Kansas—partnered to establish the Kansas Healthcare Collaborative. Today, that startup has grown into a nationally respected leader in quality improvement and patient safety.
