Upcoming Lean Healthcare Discussion in R.I. Dec 1

VIBCO VIBRATORS: VIBCO Vibrators Lean Healthcare Discussion on December 1, 2009

Come join me and our hosts from VIBCO if you’re in the Rhode Island area on December 1. I’ll be driving down from Boston to participate in the discussion. VIBCO is a manufacturer that has embraced the Lean methodology and wants to share that with others.

Many of the leading Lean healthcare examples (such as ThedaCare and Virgina Mason Medical Center) have close ties to the influence of local manufacturers. So there’s definitely something for medical professionals or healthcare organizations to learn from this session.

From their website:

Lean Healthcare Event on December 1, 2009

Register for this event

Improve the Patient Experience… Increase access to care… Achieve better clinical outcomes… Emphasize work-life balance for healthcare workers… Reduce costs for providers and patients.

Join us on Tuesday, December 1 from 3:30pm – 5:30pm at VIBCO Vibrators headquarters in Richmond, RI to see how manufacturing principles can improve healthcare. The event includes a plant tour and honest discussion of Lean Healthcare’s potential. Register Now

Amidst the passion surrounding the healthcare reform debate and so much focus on the “big picture”, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that the most impactful solutions and greatest gains will not come from Washington, D.C. They will come from you… from us… from a healthcare community that cares deeply about patients and desperately wants to improve access to services and better outcomes for all.

The answer is simple. We must eliminate waste. We must continually shrink the percentage of non-value-added activities and create better, more usable processes that enable caregivers to focus on the real work of providing the highest quality care possible.
Learn more… register for the December 1st meeting now.

I hope to see you there.
