Question Answer
The PDSA (Plan/Do/Study/Act) model for performance improvement has been implemented in a number of inducstries to do what?improve processes and outcomes
With the growing emphasis on value-based vs. volue-based care, many medical institutions and practices are adopting this model to do what?improve patient outcomes
Give an example of the PLAN phase?1) a practice or institution identifies a problem and 2) develops an intervention designed to improve the outcome
Give an example of the DO phase?the practice implements the proposed intervention, this may include provider or staff education, a new process or patient education
Give an example of the STUDY phase?the practice evaluates the effectiveness intervention.
During the ACT phase, the practice refines or ad to the process to further do what?improve outcomes
Although synthesis of ideas and solution ay be incorporated in the PDSA cycle, is it a formal component of this process? no
How can one improve the effectiveness of the PDSA cycle?it is advisable to identify specific and measurable parameters to evaluate during the planning phase
Define measurable parameters?may be processes (performing a foot exam) or an outcome (# of HTN patients achieving BP control)
What 2 things are great aids in recording and reporting data for both baseline and final data analysis?1) electronic med records 2) patient registries
The do phase is based on an ______ plan, which, in addition to provier and staff education, may include etablishment of an intervention protocol and determination of a start date and study period?nimplementation
The study period is designed to review _______ (both baseline and at the end of the study period), to evaluate successes, and to identify obstacles to success by all practice participants?performance
Based on the findings on the study period, the proposed intervention may be expanded or modified to ensure what?continued success or to improve performance further
PDSA cycle is repeated several times in what is termed a _____ ______ process to continuous improve the intervention to maximize results?rapid cycle
What is the goal of the PDSA cycle?1) design a good, not necessarily perfect intervention which will be improved upon OR 2) perfectedas it is implemented and continuously evaluated and refined
*** SUMMARY = The PDSA model is for _______ improvement?performance
*** SUMMARY = To improve the effectiveness of the PDSA cycle, it is advisable to identfy what?specific and measurable parameters to evaluate during the planning phase
*** SUMMARY = The PDSA cycle is repeated several times in what is termed a ______ ______process to continuously improve the intervention to maximize results?rapid cycle
