This course highlights the benefits of Six Sigma in the healthcare industry, focused on critical examples, case studies and unique industry problems. Designed for healthcare professionals with little or no prior experience with Six Sigma methodologies, this eight-week course helps develop skills and strategies for successful Six Sigma implementation. Karen Gemerdinger, RN, MSN, of Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa, acknowledged the significant impact Six Sigma has made throughout her organization. "By implementing Six Sigma practices, we showed that a quality improvement project can lead to many benefits, not only patients in decreased mortality, but also to physicians and nurses by making it easier for them to provide the best evidence-based, guideline-directed care possible, and to the hospital itself with decreased lengths of stay and decreased costs," she explained.
