Mission|Improvement Work|Resources|About Us|FAQs



The Michigan Quality System (MQS) is part of our continuing effort to improve quality, safety, efficiency and appropriateness across our three missions of patient care, education and research within Michigan Medicine. It combines the strength and success of our Continuous Quality Improvement Program with new tools and a unified philosophy to provide a more robust approach to quality improvement.

The Michigan Quality System (MQS) adapts "lean thinking" concepts as a consistent approach to quality and process improvement. MQS builds on the Toyota Production and GM’s Global Manufacturing System to enhance value for the customer.
