The Process Improvement Discovery Tool is meant to help hospitals provide safer patient care by completing an assessment to identify process improvement opportunities. Hospitals can use the results to develop specific strategies to address gaps and identify resource needs. Please complete the tool using 5-10 patient charts that align with this specific topic. There are two versions available for completion: an Excel file and a fillable PDF. Please note that both documents contain the same process statements; please use the document that best fits your need.
