Michelle Hennessy, BBA, LSSMBB
Performance Improvement Project Manager
Baycare Health Systems, Clearwater, Florida

Managing for daily improvement (MDI) is a tried and true management process that has been in the manufacturing and service business for many decades.  It the past 1-2 decades there has been a slower introduction and acceptance of MDIs in healthcare.  In healthcare we seem to mainly manage based on outcome measures, that are representative of the past (last month, last quarter) and one cannot make immediate changes to change the course of that outcome.  With MDIs your front line leaders can instantaneously see issues within a process or leading measures that can impact an outcome measure or lagging metric.
