    Where can I find DMAIC case studies/examples for hospitals? I am looking for something similar to what’s found in the ‘Tollgate Review’ section of iSixSigma’s magazine.I would like to use these DMAIC project examples to training hospital personnel, specifically, nurses and doctors.Thank you.

    One key resource is on this sight.  Search for “hospital” or “Healthcare” in the top right search box and you will get a few articles on different projects that may help.

    This site is a great source, I agree. However, many of the hospital examples are not detailed enough to give a good DMAIC project example. GE’s website has one good example: http://www.gehealthcare.com/usen/service/products/publication.html”Use of Six Sigma to Improve the Safety and Efficacy of Acute Anticoagulation with Heparin”

    I agree with you.  I have been trolling the net for 2 months now trying to but together a portfolio of healthcare related project examples.  Most of the examples lack sufficient detail.  I have found some through ASQ and also some of the ASQ publications I have acquired such as:
    “Improving Healthcare Using Toyota Lean Production Methods”, “Lean guide to transforming healthcare”, and “Measuring Quality Improvement in Healthcare”
    Hope this helps,

    p.s. If you do find detailed examples, please share. My e-mail is patrick.pressoiratmsss.gouv.qc.ca

    There have been many excellent and detailed DMAIC projects shared at conferences over the past few years. As one example, here is a link to a presentation on a cardiac med administration project: http://www.ehcca.com/presentations/qualitycolloquium3/mcgann_1c.ppt. Let me know if there are specific types of projects you’re interested in, and I may have other links to share. Hope this helps as a start!

    Hello Caroline
    I have seen the Cardiac example you posted.  I am currently doing a six sigma project on theatre utilisation and dna rates.
    Do you have other healthcare examples you could share, as it is most helpful to see health related projects, to help direct my own.
    Many thanks.

    Carolyn-I attempted to hit your link, but am unable to do so.  Can you double check link to assure it’s good.  Thank you.

    Link works, though it might take a minute to come up on the screen because it’s a large presentation.
