Choctaw Health improves with “Six Sigma” process
Choctaw Nation Health Services Authority (CNHSA) continues to serve their vision, “Excellence in Rural Healthcare.” An example of this servitude has been shown through CNHSA’s implementation of the six sigma process.
Currently, CNHSA is educating their leaders in Six Sigma, a quality measure that eliminates chances of errors or defects. Eliminating defects for a healthcare system can mean preventing medical errors, decreasing mortality rates, reducing lengths of stay, improving patient care and improving quality.
Other health care systems such as John Hopkins Hospital and Mercy Medical Center have implemented this system and have shown proven results in improving quality patient care. Currently, seven healthcare staff professionals have completed some type of certification.
