For those of you who have been around Lean healthcare for a while, I hope you’ve met or at least heard of Dr. Jack Billi from the University of Michigan. He’s currently the Associate VP of Medical Affairs and he’s been a champion of Lean for a long time.
For this Throwback Thursday, I’m going to highlight the times I’ve been able to feature Jack on the blog and podcast:
Podcast #110, Dr. Jack Billi, Lean and Medicine (from 2011)
How Has Dr. Jack Billi Achieved 100% Hand Hygiene Compliance Since 2008? (from 2015, including a video)
University of Michigan Health System and Lean (from 2009)
I’m also excited that the American Medical Association (actually the Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement) have asked me and Jack to co-present a new webinar that’s free and open to all who register:
being was held on May 3, 2016. (get the recording here)
- Illustrate the potential Lean has to transform clinical care and administrative practices, allowing physicians to practice “at the top of their license
- Examine how Lean empowers physicians and their teams to address challenges and be more efficient and effective while reducing burden
- Design approaches to initiate Lean-based improvement programs
- Create systems to sustain and expand improvement activities over time
We hope you’ll join us. Click here to view the archive page that has the slides and the audio recording and share this with your physician friends and colleagues… maybe even (or especially) the skeptics and detractors.
