Creato announced today that Lily Hospital has agreed to deploy the COMPASS Quality Management System as part of a comprehensive, system-wide effort to implement quality control and performance improvement programs across the enterprise. COMPASS is Creato’s proprietary quality management system designed specifically for healthcare organizations. The decision by Lily Hospital to implement COMPASS follows from a series of commitments made by the organization’s leadership to embrace empirically based methods for improving the quality of services they offer. Lily Hospital is located in the Delta State of Nigeria.
The COMPASS system was designed based on a successful product created originally for the manufacturing industry and now in use across over 4500 users in over 150 companies. The design philosophy behind both products is to create a line of sight between management and individuals responsible for improvement work. The application also includes robust tools to support Lean, Six Sigma and related performance improvement initiatives.
“We are excited to add COMPASS to our growing capabilities in performance improvement,” notes Dr. A. A. Okogun, Chief Executive Officer at the hospital. “This application will help us to fully leverage the capabilities of our people to take our organization to the next level in quality improvement.”
As part of the deployment, COMPASS will be made available to the organization’s Performance Improvement Department, management, and select individuals who will use COMPASS to identify and prioritize improvement opportunities, and to access online tools to satisfy the demands of improvement projects. COMPASS will also be used in tandem with training that Lily Hospital has planned for individuals to learn and apply the Lean and Six Sigma methodologies.
