Welcome to the Healthcare Division Community!  We are a community of ASQ members that include providers of healthcare and services, supporters of the providers, and others allied to the field. Our purpose is to offer and disseminate information relating to applications, research, innovations in quality theory and practice in healthcare.

Our myASQ community space is designed to give our members centralized access to content within our Healthcare Body of Knowledge (by searching under Resources), as well as the ability to connect and interact with other community members. Our members  come from all kinds of industries and are located in many countries around the world.

As a new member of our community, we encourage you to check out our upcoming events and start interacting with other members through our discussion board. We also encourage you to take a few minutes and check your notification settings so that you don't miss out on any of our great content (don’t forget to save your selection!).
