    Have a chat with the quality manager at the Hospital first.
    Hopefully She/He has a couple of interesting indicators / performance metrics to select one that is interesting for You due to long lead times/too much “rework”or waiting time.

    I would recommend a very simple and fast project to gain confidence and have quick results…

    You can use both lean and six sigma tools:
    – Spaghetti charts for patient transportation
    – Quick changeovers at surgery rooms
    – 5S at medicine storage cabinets (FIFO!!!)
    – TPM for diagnostic equipment

    – Gage R&R for doctors’ judgement
    – Cp/cpk for treatments
    – DOE for treatments (e.g. pills for high blood pressure)
    – Hypothesis testing of effects of treatments on patients before and after


    Always consult with doctors and quality manager before any action!
