Clinical Microsystems

Where Quality, Safety and Value Are Made

What is a Microsystem?

Clinical microsystems are the essential building blocks of larger organizations and of the health system. They are the place where patients, families, and care teams meet. Clinical microsystems do the real, hands-on, value-added work within an organization. They are living units that change over time and always have a patient (person with a health need) at their center.
