Dave – how are you progressing with RCA? Did you identify any preferred methods to identify the root cause and have you tried any out yet?

For information, root cause analysis is a broad term that encompasses a variety of methods – influence diagrams, cause and effect diagrams (which we have on the web, under visual modeling tools), systems maps, failure-mode effects analysis (FMEA), etc – pretty much anything which uses visual representation of the problem space, identifying and measuring the “vital few versus the trivial many” (the Pareto Principle).

Well, so far we had one successful RCA meeting. We have developed our RCA tool which we call fishbone RCA…Stuff you mentioned from the website will be useful for sure….We are going to do one RCA every week…We have 3 permanent members in RCA–myself , clinical director and PI. Other staff members are included as per the need. I think its going to turn out to be real useful…
