    Hello everyone,
    I am currently starting a DMAIC in our Same Day Surgery Department. The project metric that was selected for study is patient wait time from Registration in SDS through discharge. It looks like we do not have any data available regarding wait times, which is a cardinal sin at the beginning of a Six Sigma DMAIC.  Wait time also is very difficult to quantify bottom line “Hard Savings”. Does anyone have some ideas regarding the SDS process metric(s), that will show bottom line hard savings after improvements are made throughout the entire process. Thanks for your assistance!

    Mark,Since you have no wait time data, how about thoroughput through the department? This, I think, would be linked to wait time, and would also be linked to savings.Best regards,QualityColoradoThis thread has been moved to the Healthcare discussion forum.
