Increase Profitability Through Meaningful System and Cultural Improvements

Our Trusted Approach

As a training and consulting company, we work with and train an intitial “pilot team” when approaching a project. The team will then work together on the following:

 

  • Baseline the current-state system
  • Analyze the patient flow (with the aid of our Total Analysis Software Package)
  • Suggest possible process improvement solutions and ways to eliminate waste & risks/safety concerns and add value
  • Implement the new process and create a set of standard steps utilizing our Lean Hospital Track approach
  • Check the status post-implementation, then train the staff while developing Lean Leadership skills to the directors and supervisors with a focus on “Respect for Humanity”
  • Sustainment tools are embedded into the system in order to ensure continued success with the implementation
