Fremont, CA ( March 14, 2013 - Participants will be able to use these methods to not only comply with the accreditation requirements but also to enhance the goal of "first do no harm." Examples from health care industry are covered along with guidance on which methods are much more productive and proactive at the same time. Special attention is paid to improving performance in pre-visit scheduling, minimizing the door-to-doctor time when patient arrives, treatment efficiency, and post visit follow up.

Why should you attend: Too often hospitals select improvement methodologies and strategies without fully defining the problems they are trying to resolve. There are four things hospitals should know: the rate of organization variability, the rate of waste, the types of defects in the system and the rate of process variability. Less than 10 percent of health care organizations know where they stand in all four areas. The high performers manage to achieve all.

If an organization is clear on what it wants to accomplish, it makes it easier to determine how to get there. Hospital leaders must set a clear vision for what the organization needs to accomplish. Specific goals, such as eliminating the occurrence of central line bloodstream infections, ventilator-associated pneumonia, and the number of re-admissions should be set, along with establishing a framework for change.
