New - An Introduction to Continuous Improvement for Healthcare

Continuous improvement for healthcare is all about the implementation of many of the “lean” manufacturing techniques and tools used for:

  • Reducing costs, delivery and process time
  • Eliminating waste
  • Reducing unnecessary inventory
  • Improving performance quality
  • Increasing overall internal customer and patient satisfaction
  • Improving employee involvement, morale and the organizational culture
  • Helping to transform Healthcare organizations

The focus of this workshop is to provide an introduction and history of “lean” initiatives, principles for healthcare; such as, creating a lean culture, continuous improvement, value added, continuous flow and the elimination of waste.  We will also introduce the tools of lean, such as 5S, value stream mapping and the meaning of a kaizen event.

Along with understanding the basics of lean and continuous improvement for healthcare, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • What does Continuous Improvement [CI] mean in Healthcare?
  • Why should we implement CI initiatives?
  • Where should they be applied?
  • Who should be involved?
  • How can we implement the tools of CI from manufacturing?
