Poka-Yoke System Referral Logbook Keep track of referrals Monitor time response Quality control tracker of services Out-source diagnostics and imaging modalities Business agreement with diagnostic centers MOA prioritizing SMPCH patients Lab result delivery
Poka-Yoke System User-friendly ER forms and Pathway forms Lessen writing/charting time Symptom-specific pathway forms help facilitate faster more efficient flow Help lessen human error
