STEEEP Health Care

Baylor Health Care System has embraced the aims of STEEEP health care. As defined by the Institute of Medicine, STEEEP health care is Safe, Timely, Effective, Efficient, Equitable, and Patient-Centered:


Safe - avoids injuries to patients from care that is intended to help them


Timely - reduces waits and delays for both those who receive care and those who give care


Effective - based on scientific knowledge, extended to all likely to benefit, while avoiding underuse and overuse


Equitable - provides consistent quality, without regard to personal characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, geographic location, and socioeconomic status


Efficient - avoids waste, including waste of equipment, supplies, ideas, and energy


Patient-centered - respects and responds to individual patient preferences, needs, and values, ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions
