Control charts for monthly presentations

Matt SavageI recently returned from training a hospital that has been using CHARTrunner for a number of months. One individual, I’ll call her Rita, presents her quality improvement charts every month in a quality meeting with her managers. She has 22 charts and wanted an easier way to automate the process of getting ready for this monthly presentation.

Her current process is to display the chart, copy it to the Windows Clipboard, go to PowerPoint, paste the chart, resize the chart, and then repeat this for all of her charts. I feel Rita’s pain. The process is time consuming and error-prone.

The good news is that there is an easier way! We automated this process to the point that Rita never needs to launch CHARTrunner. Instead she clicks on a desktop icon each month that launches a command line parameter to update her 22 charts in her PowerPoint presentation. Two clicks accomplishes what previously took her 2 full days. The custom application we developed for Rita saves her 2 days of work each month! I have set this up for many organizations, and I’d like the opportunity to do the same for you.
