AMA Quality Improvement Webinar – Root-cause analysis: Digging deep to improve
When: Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at 1:00PM to 2:00PM ET
Without an understanding of what is really driving poor quality or performance, it is difficult to improve. Root-cause analysis is a critical tool in the quality improvement tool box that allows professionals to understand what’s at the heart of the problem, and then develop improvement ideas that can make a difference. How can you improve if you do not understand the challenge and the contributing factors?
In this 1-hour webinar, PCPI Director of Quality Improvement Stephen L. Davidow, MBA-HCM, CPHQ, APR, will cover three common forms of root-cause analysis, discuss the advantages of applying these methods to different circumstances and environments, and how root-cause analysis is used as the basis for creating and implementing ideas that lead to robust improvement.
