Design for Six Sigma in Healthcare; the Medication Process
Paper i proceeding, 2010
This paper used an action research approach to study the application of DFSS in healthcare and explore its suitability in certain patient processes. The study concluded that DFSS is a suitable method for patient processes and that DMADV provides positive support for improvement work. However, one challenge in applying DFSS in a healthcare setting is to assess needs that are not explicit to the patient, which means that it is crucial to seek knowledge about implicit needs.
