Constraints Management
A Force Multiplier for Healthcare Performance Improvement

Join this dynamic webinar by registering here.

When a hospital is presented with major regulatory changes that can impact revenues and margins, a robust performance improvement program must be part of the solution. However, not all programs are created equal. Take a look at an example of how the right set of tools and strategic thinking makes all the difference.

A Lean Healthcare Program
Focuses on removing non-value added activities and creating flow in value streams.

Evaluating all the process steps in the pharmacy and removing those that are not producing value for the patient who needs medication.

A Six Sigma Program
Focuses on reducing variation and removing errors from processes, which increases quality and operational outcomes.

Using DMAIC projects to eliminate prescription errors in the pharmacy.

The NOVACES Approach
Focuses on removing waste and errors after identifying the constraint in the process. The constraint is like the weakest link in a chain and improvements there yield the greatest impact on a system. Then use best-of-breed tools to improve flow and quality at a point that can generate the most revenue for the organization.

Identifying the pharmacy’s robot as a constraint and improving throughput of filled prescriptions by 12x and enabling the pharmacy to free enough capacity to fill discharge prescriptions. How much revenue might that produce in your hospital?

About the Webinar

Constraints Management is virtually unknown as a performance improvement method in U.S. hospitals, but those who are using it are reporting drastically better results. In this webinar, learn how integrating Lean Six Sigma with Constraints Management yields 10 to 20 times greater returns on investment than Lean and Six Sigma alone.

Based on the newly released book “Performance Improvement for Healthcare,” healthcare leaders will learn how process improvement methods such as Lean, Six Sigma and Constraints Management can be used together to achieve strategies for improving the patient experience, reducing the cost of care, exceeding benchmarks for quality measures, preparing for Value Based Purchasing, and meeting Meaningful Use goals.
