A measurement planning form enables you to answer with confidence the second question of the Model for Improvement—“How will we know if a change is an improvement?” The form can help organize an improvement effort and prevent a poorly executed project. In this lesson, you’ll play the role of an improvement team member in a hospital that’s trying to improve patient “flow” and minimize delays. You’ll get a comprehensive look at the measurement planning form you’d use for such a project, and you’ll have a chance to practice making one of your own.
