The LIFE QI System
Life QI is an online quality improvement (QI) platform that helps teams and organisations manage QI projects and report on QI activity.
Life QI is helping to connect people across health and care in the areas of innovation, quality improvement and patient safety by supporting improvement work.
Life QI was developed by Seedata Ltd in partnership with South West AHSN, progressed as a collaborative initiative by the national Patient Safety Collaborative and is now widely used across the UK. Wessex AHSN is delighted to support the use of the LIFE QI system across Wessex.
What does QI do?
Life QI supports QI teams to plan, monitor and report progress of their improvement projects, as well as connect with other members of the QI community.
Based on the Institute of Health Improvement’s (IHI) Model for Improvement, Life QI helps teams to create Driver Diagrams; document Change Ideas and PDSA cycles; generate SPC charts and produce Progress Reports.
Life QI also enables improvers to search for, and connect with, other teams and individuals within your organisation or across the country who have shared interests and/or are working on similar projects.
Obtaining a user licence for the LIFE QI system
Many NHS and non NHS healthcare organisations across Wessex have a corporate licence to use the LIFE QI system. Access to the system is potentially available to everyone interested in healthcare improvement.
If you are interested in obtaining a licence to use the system you can apply by going to the LIFE QI website and selecting the "Don't have an account" option. You will then be contacted with relevant information about registering as a LIFE QI user.
