Improving Quality of Bariatric Patient Care

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center’s Silverman Institute for Health Care Quality and Safety holds an annual symposium for all BIDMC and affiliated staff to showcase the patient care improvements they have worked to implement in their clinical areas.

At the 2016 Silverman Symposium, the Weight Loss Surgery Center presented their report on working to decrease the number of patients who are re-admitted to BIDMC within 30 days of undergoing a bariatric surgery procedure.

The Weight Loss Surgery team showcased their interventions to successfully decrease the re-admission rate over a two-year time period and how they are staying on track.
