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 the U-M Health System. 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.
