Operational leaders must look for untapped efficiencies in all they do, from maximizing the design and planning of their facilities to health care information technology (IT) implementations and everything in between. Developing a culture of Lean transformation can go a long way in helping an organization meet and even exceed its goals. Our experts help members learn and implement Lean methodologies to eliminate waste, operate more efficiently and increase time with patients.
Our consultants have wide-ranging experience to help members with specific projects or staff training:
Lean health care education
Sustainable change comes from educating leadership and staff on lean methods. Our customized training programs are led by expert facilitators leveraging Lean tools and concepts and can be delivered on-site at member facilities or off-site at the Denver Health Lean Academy, Belmont University or regional affiliates.
Lean transformation consulting
New payment models are driving the need for greater efficiencies and better patient outcomes drive the need for enterprisewide transformation. Our Lean experts create customized programs to improve patient safety and deliver significant bottom-line results.
Management systems development consulting
Our experts help develop and implement the management systems necessary to sustain results across departments and service lines. This includes support in visual management, leadership standard work and single-point accountability driving efficiencies and effectiveness to directly improve patient safety.
Hospital budgets are continually stretched, and we provide a clear path for members to eliminate waste, reduce cost and improve patient outcomes through the Lean principles embedded in facility designs. From Lean-led architectural design, master planning, future state process design and workplace organization we can drive significant efficiencies and operational improvement.
Lean-led IT solutions
Statistics show that the demand for IT resources will continue to rise significantly. We help IT departments maximize their resources by streamlining basic support functions so more time can be spent on strategic implementation of electronic health records (EHRs) and other critical systems.
