Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
In this project lean methods were applied to reduce delays and wastes in a selected section of the Same-Day Surgery Chart Preparation Process at St. Vincent Hospital. The methodology included observation and interviews, data collection and analysis, analysis of Undesirable Effects, development of potential solutions, and vetting of solutions at a Kaizen event. The project generated cost-effective recommendations for improving communication, coordination and information management in the target process. Implementation of the recommendations will result in significant savings in labor and reduction of delays.
