  15. Rapid Cycle Improvement Model What are we trying to accomplish? How will we know that a change is an improvement? What changes can we make that will result in an improvement? Cycle 1 Cycle 2 Cycle 3

  16. Potential EMSC Monitors: • Timely management • Wait time to see an MD in the ER • Time to initiate antibiotics in fever management • Use of an intraosseous line when needed • Transfer within 2 hours when appropriate • Use of the Broselow, or similar, system • Pain management in the non verbal child • Asthma management • Obtaining a patient height • Peak flow measurement • Abuse recognition • Provision of injury prevention education

  17. What Quality Improvement activities are you working on at your hospital? Participant Survey Results

  18. An Example of Rapid Cycle Planning Where do we begin?

  19. Change Concepts • Change concepts are generic ideas that can be applied to your situation to spark an idea for a specific change in your situation • Not all change concepts apply to all aims • Brainstorm ways to apply these concepts to the problem at hand

  20. Change Concepts • Enhance the Producer /Customer relationship • Listen to patients • Coach customers to use product/service • Reach agreement on expectations • Mass customize services to patient

  21. Change Concepts • Change the work environment • Reduce demotivating aspects • Implement cross training • Clarify roles & expectations • Improve work flow • Synchronize • Find and remove bottlenecks • Do tasks in parallel • Adjust to peak demand

  22. Change Concepts • Manage Time • Reduce the setup or startup time • Optimize maintenance • Reduce wait time • Manage Variation • Eliminate waste • Reduce or eliminate overkill • Recycle or reuse

  23. Change Concepts • Optimize inventory • Match inventory to demand • Use pull systems - proactive • Reduce multiple brands • Design systems to avoid mistakes • Use reminders • Use differentiation • Use constraints • Minimize handoffs

  24. Composition Sponsor Leader Team member(s) Helpful hints Be Multidisciplinary Assure available leadership Include hands-on expertise & variety of skills, e.g. computer skills Recognize progress Clarify roles & responsibilities Handle conflict constructively Maintain core group for consistency Team

  25. Essential Tools • Meeting Agenda (every meeting) • Meeting Summary (every meeting) • Project Work plan (create 1, post & update) • Project Report Form (Internal - External)

  26. Other Helpful Tools • Brainstorming • Run Charts • Flow Charts • Cause & Effect Diagram • Pareto Diagram • Nominal Group Technique • Force Field Analysis • Refer to Section 12 - Tab “QI Tools & Techniques”

  29. Barrier Busters • Barrier - Problems with Setting an Aim • Is there sponsorship for the project? • Does project fit with organizational mission? • Does project conflict with our values? • Is Aim Statement clear and precise?

  30. Barrier Busters • Barrier - Problems with Teams • Is your leader available and empowered? • Are you meeting weekly? • Does everyone know their responsibilities? • If you have conflicts, who can you request to facilitate your team?

  31. Barrier Busters • Barrier - Problems with Resources • Suggestions: • Keep your team small at first • Use volunteers and champions • Collect just enough data • Set a dedicated meeting time • Huddle if needed (15 minutes is all you need!) • Involve senior leadership if resources are a problem

  32. Barrier Busters Barrier -Resistance : • “No one thinks there is a problem” • Take the high ground... • “We are different” • Share information and challenge assumptions... • “It’s too difficult” • Look at others (internally & externally) that have successfully made a change • Break ideas for change into small components • Present changes as a “test” - that can be accepted, refined, or abandoned • Use just enough data • Post results of the small test from the outset as proof that it can happen • Engage senior leadership - it is a must

  33. Resistance – How people respond to change… • Innovators – 2.5% • Early Adopters – 13.5% • Early Majority – 34% • Late Majority – 34% • Laggards – 15%

  34. Barrier Busters • Barrier - Problems with Ownership • Be sure to include all impacted areas • Collaborate with staff at all levels • Involve the people that DO the work • Find champions in several disciplines • Keep sponsors informed and involved

  35. Next Steps: Action List • What is one problem in your work setting where you think Rapid Cycle Quality Improvement would help you? • What is one thing that you can do by next Tuesday?
