Abstract:
Hospitals throughout the world are increasingly committing to and implementing quality improvement systems focusing on utilization of lean principles. An academic, community Magnet hospital committed to a formal approach of lean methods they term the System for Partners in Performance Improvement (SPPI). The implicit goal is to use new knowledge and innovations to deliver the highest quality care. More specifically, SPPI utilizes Rapid Improvement Events (RIEs) to eliminate waste and repetition to operate at maximum efficiency. This presentation will detail the RIE process, implementation, and associated empirical outcomes intended to promote exemplary professional practice throughout the presenting organization. The RIEs occur over a consecutive four day period. Participants include staff nurses directly involved in the process, as well as other key individuals such as a team leader trained in lean techniques, affiliated members who benefited from the process changes, and outside eyes. Over the four days, participants thoroughly evaluate the current state and map out and rapid test new and better ways to work. Inherent in redesign is utilization of the 6-S Check-List: Sort; Set in Order to Flow; Scrub; Safety; Standardize; and, Sustain. This presentation will offer a brief overview of evidence associated with utilization of lean principles in healthcare, with more in-depth description of how these principles were utilized to improve distinct processes associated with care delivery in the presenting organization. Take home learnings will be of interest to attendees who desire to explore and implement lean process improvement methods to promote exemplary professional practice in any setting.
