The Ottawa Hospital Innovation Framework™ is a health care-centric, five-step approach that combines elements of other well-known models in a comprehensive and user-friendly way.
Here are the framework’s five steps to follow for your QI project:
- define the problem,
- analyze the situation,
- test and trial improvements,
- lock-in improvements, and
- evaluate and spread the improvements.
Each step is accompanied by useful tools, templates and reference materials that provide the guidance you need to move through every stage.
