Hospitals across the country have realized the value of performance excellence teams and process improvement tools. Healthcare has reached the point where it is absolutely critical to learn how to do more with less. How do you improve patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes while becoming more efficient? Using what has already been learned within the manufacturing industry is a great way to start. Even though hospital care is quite different from manufacturing, there are still many techniques and tools that can be shared. Using these proven manufacturing operations management techniques was also a focus at this year’s Patient Flow Summit. http://patientflowsummit.com/
