PDSA Cycle

South Carolina encourages the use of a continuous quality improvement cycle using the Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) model.  The PDSA cycles allow practices to regularly assess the progress made in achieving their QI project goals.

The PDSA cycle helps the quality improvement team focus on three primary items:

  1. What are we trying to accomplish?
  2. What change can we do that will result in improvement?
  3. How will we know that a change is an improvement?
