    Message from Bogota, Colombia, S.A.
    We are going toΒ design a Six Sigma project for the Clinical Laboratory of a private hospital and we have a volume of 45,000 (out and inpatients) test per month in a fully automatizedΒ laboratory. I would like to have some ideas of projects that other people has been done. I just finished my black belt training.
    Thanks a lot for your help,

    For the last four years I have been applying Focus PDSA/Six Sigma/BSC hybrids in labs. I am willing to share experiences – ‘warts and all’

    Dr Khan,
    The first step is toΒ acknowledgeΒ all of your previous qualty activities in the Lab including CAP/CLIA, Focus PDSA, etc. No organization is a ‘clean piece of paper’ and if we ignore the strengths and weaknesses of previous initiatives we will confuse staff and are likely to repeat the same mistakes.
    Six Sigma is an extension of the quality journey not a reinvention as some people would like you to believe.
    If we do this study part of PDSA I will be in a much better position to advise you of the next steps (in my opinion).
    Aloha John
