In Tony’s new role, which is dedicated to making improvements in the MRI division, he is able to initiate changes while, thanks to his background, understanding the workflow and challenges faced by the employees who work in MRI. Tony will use our QI process to implement changes, which includes not only identifying a problem but also investigating the issue and ensuring that frontline staff are enabled to make measureable improvements based on their observations and feedback. Tony is beginning to identify opportunities for improvement in the MRI division and we are excited to have him join our QI team!
