OMIA: Opportunities brought to Light

The power of systems improvement - without the pain

What is OMIA?

OMIA is an innovative systems improvement methodology based on the strongest elements of Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), but with several important improvements and extensions.

  • Utilizes QI Path's "Structured Common Sense" methodology
  • Leverages ALL opportunities - not just risk points and incidents
  • Folds into existing unit workflows like huddles and rounding
  • Performed as a rolling activity - not dependent upon "projects"

OMIA is a simple process to create massive improvements in safety and quality. You'll provide front line staff with a real voice, and you'll have the framework and tools to recognize, prioritize and capititalize on Opportunities inherent in their knowldge and first hand experience.

Improvement starts with Opportunity

OMIA starts with a process or operation and looks forward, capturing the front line's knowledge of what not only could go wrong, but what should go right. OMIA helps you find and capitalize on Opportunities such as:

  • Observations and concerns
  • Lessons learned and "good catches"
  • Specific ideas for improvement
  • Perceived vulnerabilities and risks

Through OMIA, Opportunities from the front line are captured quickly and placed into the QI Path system's structured environment where they are prioritized and actions are put in place to capitalize on those with the highest potential.
