Online PR News – 04-May-2013 – Reno – Reno, Nevada (April 11, 2013) – Creating Effective Organizations (CEO), a highly regarded consulting company, is offering lean healthcare training to improve the performance of medical facilities in providing a positive experience for patients. By instilling a problem solving environment in hospitals, the program aims to optimize the procedures of clients for efficient processes in the admission, treatment and discharge of patients.

In realizing its potential in improving the processes in hospitals, CEO founder Ileana Vassiliou incorporated the Lean Manufacturing of the Toyota Production System into the healthcare industry. This method encourages efficiency by reducing the distance between each process, thereby reducing the overall production time. Consequently, the company is able to produce more cars within the same period.

The Lean In Healthcare aims to improve efficiency of hospital procedures to accommodate more patients. The goal of the program is to eliminate the time wasted in certain activities and focus on more value-adding tasks. For example, a hospital can decrease the time of administering medications and focus on the nurses' main line of service, which is to spend more time at the bedside of patients.

Promoting a culture of improvement, the program is a continuous project. From the board of directors to the nurses, all employees contribute towards the common goal of perfecting the ir operations to provide the utmost service to patients. Every time an employee recognizes an area of improvement in the process, they will apply a solution to ensure that it does not happen again.

With everyone in the hospital working together to provide a better service, patients will rate the hospital process higher, which reflects on their HCAHPS scores. To learn more about performance improvement in healthcare, visit www.TheLeanInHealthCare.com.
