TapRooT® RCA is Used in How Many Industries/Countries?

Hospital Root Cause Analysis

Where is TapRooT® RCA Used?

I was talking to someone in the medical industry recently, and they asked: “How many people in the medical industry use TapRooT®?” I gave them several examples of major healthcare systems that use TapRooT® RCA, but I thought … they asked the WRONG question.

The true value of a root cause analysis system is how many different places it is being used SUCCESSFULLY.

TapRooT® ® RCA is used in the Petrochemical Industry

Note that this is not the same as if the system is used in a particular industry. It must be consistently used successfully. And if it is used successfully in many other industries and many countries, that proves even more that the system is useful and will probably be useful when applied at your company.
