THE SOCIETY FOR HEALTHCARE IMPROVEMENT PROFESSIONALS

Founded in 2011, the Society for Healthcare Improvement Professionals (SHIP) is a dynamic community of practitioners sharing advancements, innovations and applications of performance improvement, Lean and Six Sigma practices in healthcare. SHIP’s mission is to provide a forum to promote best practices and to support those working to help healthcare organizations become more efficient, and to improve service delivery at all levels of the organization.
