Abstract

This study aims to investigate the utility and potentialities of statistical process control for monitoring performances of healthcare organizations. We retrospectively applied the statistical process control for monitoring perioperative system performance, represented in this study by the operating room turnaround time. The results showed that the control charts are able to identify the steady-state behavior of the process and to detect improvements or deteriorations in process performance over time
