Good to Great: Applying Lean Concepts to Healthcare

Lean Management – Sounds like a time consuming process that we don’t have time for. But in reality, all it is, is slowly modifying processes so that we reduce the amount of supply chain work and resources, but still provide the customer with the value they want and expect. “Less work” and “less resources” is good for everyone. This session provides an overview of supply chain management and the areas that could be modified to reduce waste, whether that it is wasted efforts or wasted products. In addition, it will describe how to instill a culture of change within your own team and empower your staff to begin looking for and implementing small changes which will ultimately bring value back to the stakeholders that we serve.

Today’s Supply Chain leaders are tasked with managing the intersection of cost, quality and outcomes across multiple stakeholders across multiple facilities. Often this charge can consume our time, energy and resources and make it all but impossible to focus on our own internal processes. Therein lies the problem, if the quality of our service is not maximized how can we possibly seek to lead others? We strive to lead others without first insuring that we are as efficient as possible in all that we do. This session will describe how to install of culture of change within your own team and empower our staff to begin looking for and implementing small changes which will ultimately bring value back to the stakeholders that we serve.
