Option #1: Improvement Model Memo
For this assignment, select one of the following performance opportunities:
- Patients experience long wait times and delays for outpatient diagnostic services.
- A large number of hospitalized patients develop a wound infection following surgery.
Next, select a specific improvement model (such as PDSA, RCI, FOCUS-PDCA, FADE, Lean, and Six Sigma) to address your chosen opportunity.
Write a memo addressed to the CEO of the organization, explaining why the model you chose would work best for that opportunity.
The memo should be well-written and meet the following requirements:
- Two pages (single-spaced) in length
- Include at least three references from the peer-reviewed articles. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find peer-reviewed articles.
- Conforms to CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA.
