Marshall Plan for Health Care: Quality Improvement Coach (QIC)
In different areas of the country, ASQ members, under the leadership of the ASQ Healthcare have teamed up with the local healthcare community and medical organizations to help improve healthcare delivery. Being that we are all stakeholders in this system and that there is much opportunity to apply quality and lean methodologies, this is a great place for ASQ members to use their skills for the betterment of the system. The focus is on primary care doctor offices. This collaboration is extensive in Michigan, started in parts of Pennsylvania. Currently there is a "pull" for volunteers in Southern California and in Kansas City, Missouri. Read: The HCD Marshall Plan Is Finally Off The Ground
