Accordingto Radawski,(1999)Continuous Quality Improvement involves a good management processthat calls for an all inclusive involvement of the medical providersin determining the best ways to offer the best medical services tothe patients. Since the mid 1900, health practitioner had developedthe urge to improve the quality of medical care and services (Leddy,2010). They suggested the necessity of coming up with a systematicapproach towards streamlining the services offered in a hospital. Similarly, the organizational data management and documentation wasnot standardized and thus was less familiar to the health careproviders back in the days (Buchbinder&amp Thompson, 2010).

TheCQI was to be adopted to bring total overhaul in the in theeffectiveness and efficiency within the health servicesorganizations. It was based on the strategy that to better solveproblems better and offer better services in the health carefacilities, it was important to synchronize the activities of all thestakeholders to facilitate better problem solving approach (Hughes&amp Hughes, 2008).The holistic implementation of the adoption of the CQI involves afully systematically coordinated data storage that can effectivelyand efficiently improve the medical care in a way that paper recordsalone as were used before, couldn’t(Issel, 2004).

CQIwas also adopted to dispel fear and promote honest and respectamongst the stakeholders. This helps in improving products byunderstanding the production procedures and the general way thingsare done(Hughes &amp Hughes, 2008).The philosophy underlying behind the production of quality productrevolves not only in lack of will, skill or know how, but also inpoor leadership, design and objective(Issel, 2004). For the CQI to be successful in the HSOs, it is vital for themanagement to regularly assess activities across all areasperiodically and apply the process in their leadership as well(Radawski,1999).
