- Cengage Learning
This book teaches and illustrates the use of SPC (Statistical Process Control) techniques for healthcare professionals. SPC techniques allow these professionals to properly extract information from healthcare data, make intelligent decisions based on statistical data, and know if the data has been presented in an appropriate manner. Using a case study approach, the authors present the theory, computations (hand and computer), and application (case study) for each concept. In recent years, SPC has been proven effective in improving the quality of health care, just as it has in other service industries and in manufacturing.
