  • Case Study – Improving Health Care through Data Driven Process Redesign
    The IOM report, “Crossing the Quality Chasm”, called for fundamental reforms in the health care system. It identified deficiencies and problems that contribute to sub-optimal health care quality, compromised patient safety, and waste in the system. More importantly, it outlined an agenda for making our health care system safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient and equitable.

    An informative article entitled Improving Health Care through Data Driven Process Redesign, co-authored by Dr. Kenneth D. Coburn, CEO & President of Health Quality Partners, and Tim Hediger, Director of Improving Systems at Doylestown Hospital, will provide ideas for your own “fundamental reform initiatives.”

    The Use of Three-Sigma for Control Limits
    Three-sigma (σ) limits are generally used for control limits on a Shewhart control chart. Why?

    Upcoming Webinar: Automating Quality Reporting Using Excel / MS Access Data

    This webinar explores the challenges associated with Health Care Quality Reporting, particularly with the use of Excel as a reporting tool. We will look at Quality reporting issues in healthcare and present a way to automate reporting and distribute real time reports using your Intranet. Best of all, you can continue to use your existing data residing in Excel, MS Access and any other databases.

    Join us for this complimentary webinar on February 21 at 1:00pm PST. The webinar will last approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes at the end for Q&A. Space is limited to the first 15 connections, so don't delay!

    What you Need to Know about Health Care Quality Systems

    Health care is going through some exciting times in regards to Quality Improvement and the use of Statistical Process Control (SPC). In many ways, it is the best of times and the worst of times. It is the best of times because SPC provides critical information to help you understand your processes and outcomes and to detect areas for improvement (results, cost containment, value-based purchasing rewards, etc.). Additionally, measurement leads to monitoring. Monitoring ensures we don’t revert back to our “old ways.”
