Lean Processes, Quick Results, Fun at Work
Navigate through Complexity, Get Lean!
Imagine the following scenario: everybody is in the OR on time, OR processes all run smoothly. Patients appreciate that they do not have to wait. Your employees are happy that they can organize their work environment on their own. Optimization takes place everyday and everywhere as a matter of course. And there are no external consultants anywhere in sight. Apparently there is no need for them any longer.
Do you think this is Utopia? No, this is not a dream, it is the result of Lean Healthcare. You can make it happen.
Change projects often fail because of their complexity. Attempts by the management to understand and manage complex processes rarely lead to good results. Why? Because organizational and cultural issues have not been considered or stakeholders have not been involved.
Lean Healthcare will change your way to change.
Lean Is Different
With Lean Healthcare you will take advantage of the creativity and knowledge of your employees. The IDEAL principle is the key to quick success. It provides:
- exactly what the patient needs
- individual solutions customized to individual needs
- evaluation of results, measurable success
- efficient use of resources
- immediate response to problems or changes
- working environment, that is physically, professionally and emotionally safe
Why Does it Work?
Lean Healthcare reduces complexity by breaking down complex process segments into basic and individual processes. Through this step small change projects are generated that will lead to a continuous change with striking results for the whole organization.
The basic principles of Lean Healthcare: Visualization of processes, of waste and its causes. Changes are tested, verified and rolled out. After a while they are reviewed and, if necessary, amended. The continuous circle of KAIZEN is created.
