The IHI Open School is an on-line quality and safety curriculum provided free-of-charge to health professions students, university faculty, and medical residents. The Open School offers a range of online courses in the areas of quality improvement, patient safety, patient- and family-centered care, managing health care operations, and leadership. Individual subscriptions are available to others at a rate of $300 per year.

Free Access through THA:
Through the Tennessee Center for Patient Safety, THA has purchased a subscription and is providing free access as a benefit to employees and trustees of our safety partner hospitals. The purpose of the program is to best equip Tennessee hospitals with the tools and education necessary to improve the quality of care they provide. Users are able to select and complete as few or as many courses as they are interested in and earn certification or continuing education credit. CME, CNE, CPHQ and ACPE credit is available for over 35 contact hours. Additionally, the content is valuable to trustees in understanding the quality and safety issues hospitals face. THA is able to track the number of users, organizations participating, progress of participants, courses completed, and lesson scores.
