Additionally, the ACS’s Inspiring Quality Initiative is working with hospitals to improve the US healthcare system in a variety of ways. The Inspiring Quality campaign is based on ACS’s belief that driving quality is the most important thing it can do in healthcare and for its patients. Dr Hoyt says ACS has been traveling to public forums and conferences throughout the country to “try and share our experience and our understanding, and through that, inspire others to really get involved with the quality movement.”
