L ensemble des présentations est disponible sur le site Web des JASP à la section Archives au : Denise Murphy, RN, BSN, MPH, CIC Vice President, Quality and Patient Safety Main Line Health System APIC President 2007 Advanced facilitation, group process, team building and performance improvement skills d f i t kill Looking outside of healthcare (engineering) to understand how to hardwire process improvements Enhanced abilities to collaborate, negotiate and influence others at all levels of the organization th t ll l l f th i ti Influence front line staff to see patient experience vs. task list!

3 What is the role of What is the role of culture culture in improving performance (safety)? C l i h f b li f l d h Culture is the set of beliefs, values and norms that shape the way organizations think and act it s the way we do things around here. Culture trumps strategy every time so you must understand it before successful prevention measures can reduce harm. Power Distance is the extent to which the less powerful expect and accept that power is distributed unequally. PD is a measure of interpersonal power or is a measure of interpersonal power or influence superior to subordinate as perceived by the subordinate. Healthcare Perspective: Surgeons & anesthesiologists view low Nurses view as significantly higher Nurses view as significantly higher Source: from Source: from * Weick & Sutcliffe attribute of HRO s:5. Deference to expertise. Actions: Use organizational culture Use organizational culture to reduce power distance found in professional cultures. 3

4 Creating a reliable culture means 3 things 1. Set clear expectations (about safety behaviors) 2. Educate and provide tools/skills needed to meet expectations 3. Hold everyone accountable to work as a team focused on safety Reliability: Not By Process Design Alone Reliability: Not By Process Design Alone Optimized Outcomes 10-6 Behavior Accountability 10-5 Behavior Expectations Knowledge & Skills Reinforce & Build Accountability Integrated With Process Design Evidence-Based Best Practices gy Enablers Technology Intuitive Work Environment Resource Allocation Continuous Quality Improvement Healthcare Performance Improvement, LLC.

7 Choosing your PI Initiatives Required Measures For accreditation: CMS Core Measures; Nat l PS Goals For accreditation: CMS Core Measures; Nat l PS Goals Organizational Annual Operating Goals PI Initiatives for clinical effectiveness, efficiency Departmental Goals and Objectives Goals Must be SMART Specific Measurable Attainable Realistic Timely 7

8 Team Roles Champion/Executive Sponsor: person who can remove barriers for team Leader: Process owner Facilitator: IP or person driving the improvement effort Member: key stakeholders, customers, front line staff PI mentor: Assists the team in applying PI methodologies P A C D STD WORK FOCUS PDCA (PDSA) Model Performance Performance Improvement Methodology Time Find a process to improve Organize a team (that knows the process) Clarify current knowledge of the process Understand sources of process variation Select the process improvement (solution) Plan the improvement and continue data collection Do: implement the improvement, collect data Check and study the results or impact of interventions Act to hold the gain and continue to improve the process 8

9 Six Sigma = VARIATION What is Lean/Six Sigma? Combination of Lean and Six Sigma methodologies for quality improvement A tool box of quality and performance improvement techniques Includes familiar tools such as Process mapping Voting on improvements FMEA: Failure Modes Effects Analysis Outcome & process measurement 9

10 Six Sigma Basics Understanding the current process Inputs>Activity>Outputs Identifying any variation in the process Standard Deviation (Sigma) Identifying what is critical to quality of the product As determined by customers Measuring the current process Capability of the process to create a positive outcome Identify where defects lie Re defining the process to reduce defects and variation while meeting the customer s expectations Methodology: DMAIC Define: Scope and align your project Measure: Establish the baseline Analyze: Determine the inputs that create your result Y= f (x) Improve: Optimize the process & input Control: Sustain the results 10

11 Y=f(x) Understanding the function (f) of the combined i ( ) h / l (Y) inputs (x) creates the output/result (Y) Inputs = steps in the process or process measures Y = the product/service the customer requires Example: Sterile technique(x1) + skin disinfection (x2) + hand hygiene (x3) = (Y) Infection free placement of a central venous catheter Introduction to Lean Lean is a business system devoted to continuous improvement improvement. Lean focuses on managing processes and leading people in the workplace rather than traditional techniques of managing the business and leading from the back office. 11

12 Lean Customer Focus Value is defined by the customer Value add activities directly y transform the service or product into what the customer s willing to pay for; everything else is Waste (non value) There are two general categories of waste: 1) Pure Waste completely useless activity (ex. searching for supplies, sending orders to completely useless activity (ex searching for supplies sending orders to Lab or Pharmacy without required information creating rework or defects, calling to check order status) 2) Necessary Waste required by today s process but not by the customer (ex. excessive patient transport & high supply inventories) The 8 Operational Wastes 1. DEFECTS: (Wrong info. / Rework / Inaccurate information). 2. OVERPRODUCTION: (Duplication / Extra information). 3. WAITING: (Patients / Providers / Material). 4. NEGLECT OF HUMAN TALENT: (Unused Skills / Injuries / Unsafe Environment / Disrespect). 5. TRANSPORTATION: (Transactions / Transfer Moving) 6. INVENTORY: V OR : ((Incomplete / Piles). co p ete / es). 7. MOTION: (Finding Information / Double entry). 8. EXCESS PROCESSING: (Extra Steps / Quality Checks / Workarounds / Over processing / Inspection / Oversight). 12

13 Basic Lean Principles Flow: Flow: The continuous creation or delivery of value without interruption 5 5S: A complete system for workplace organization, including 5S: p y p g g the process for sustainment Visual Management: Using visual signals for more effective Visual Management: communication Pull: Working or producing to downstream demand only Pull: Standard Work: Identifying the best practice and Standard Work: standardizing to it stabilizing the process (predictability) standardizing to it, stabilizing the process (predictability) 1 by 1: Reducing batch size to one whenever possible to 1 by 1: support flow Zero Defects: Not sending product/service to downstream Zero Defects: customer without meeting all requirements Gap Analysis C Current State GAP Future State 13

14 Process Mapping What is a process? A series of steps or activities that transforms inputs into p p outputs (desired result) Illustrates how steps and activities are linked Keeps focus on facts and actual process steps Assists with identifying waste, non value added work Improve the Experience of a Patient with a Central Venous Catheter High Level Current State Decision to I t Insert Prep for Procedure Insertion of Central Line IV support/ line?

Selecting Appropriate Goals (Targets) Start by evaluating how close you are to the chosen benchmark Targeting Zero: Early on, may be theoretical goal to drive organization s commitment If at NHSN s top quartile, aim for top decile (0.00) The decrease you select depends on your current rates If worse than pooled mean a 50% decrease is reasonable If at top decile a 20% decrease is a real stretch Select a Realistic goal that stretches the team but is not completely unattainable 16
