In today’s fiscally-conscious healthcare environment, many health systems have at least some focus and structure on cost reduction. However, it is not uncommon for these efforts to feel rushed, unorganized, and even chaotic at times. Typically, significant savings opportunities are identified in only a matter of weeks with the expectation that the costs will be removed shortly thereafter. While this approach may work once or twice, it is not a sustainable methodology for ongoing cost reduction programs.
Gaining Efficiencies within Process Improvement
In anticipation of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s annual conference, this webinar will provide an overview of healthcare process improvement methodologies, review best practices in process improvement and outline a solution for solving key challenges within process improvement. Some of the challenges addressed are:
• How big is the problem?
• How do I know I am working on the right initiatives?
• How do I find easily, accessible data?
• How can I make ongoing tracking less burdensome?
Strata Decision Technology will also be at Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s conference.
