September 3, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Submissions for the inaugural Jack Billi Award for Inspiring Quality Improvement are due next week! Submissions are due by the end of the day next Friday, Sept. 11.

This new award was created in recognition of Jack Billi, M.D., a longtime U-M physician and faculty member who has had a tremendous impact on quality improvement work in our organization.

This award recognizes someone who exhibits the passion for quality improvement that Billi inspired. Nominations will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Exudes enthusiasm for improvement and learning
  • Treats work as an experiment: finds and fixes the root causes of important problems
  • Models “Go See, Ask Why, Show Respect”
  • Engages, coaches and inspires others to improve their work
  • Has applied quality improvement methods resulting in measurable change and transformation in a unit, department or the larger organization.

All Michigan Medicine faculty and staff are eligible for the award, with the exception of those who are fully appointed to the Quality Department.

The winner will be announced during this year’s Quality Month Symposium.
