Abstract : Total quality management (TQM) is a management philosophy gaining widespread use in American production and service organizations. Though founded by Americans, it was popularized by its successful use in post war Japan. Top- level management commitment to quality, collaborative work efforts, process improvement, long-term commitment, measurement and statistical process control, investment in knowledge, and a customer focus are the core concepts. The Nursing Information Systems Specialist (NISS) who is well trained in TQM and implements a sound plan for its implementation, can aid in development of high quality information systems and support the quality improvement endeavors of the parent organization.
