Statistical Process Control (SPC) for Quality Improvement
SPC is an industry-standard methodology for measuring and controlling quality during the manufacturing process. It has increasingly been shown to be useful in health care quality improvement projects. It’s a set of methods based on the theory of variation that can be used to make sense of any process or outcome measured over time, usually with the intention of detecting improvement or maintaining a high level of performance.
