At the Society for Health Systems Conference This Week


    I'll be speaking Thursday morning at the annual Society for Health Systems conference in Chicago.

    I'll be around all day Wednesday, attending a workshop in the afternoon. If any Lean Blog readers are attending, let me know via email and maybe we can arrange a meetup.

    The session I'm attending is:

    Using the A3 to Drive Process Improvements Related to Safety

    Kate Bombach, Lean Coach, University of Michigan Health System

    Louise Grondin, Sentinel and Adverse Events Manager and

    Vicki Young, Admin. Manager Senior Healthcare, University of Michigan Health System

    My presentation will be about applications of Lean in patient care settings (primary care and nursing units), based on some project work I've been involved in.
