Webinar with Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI)

Monday, September 12, 2016

OPS Vice President of Operations, John Beakes III, will be leading a webinar entitled Improving Quality and Speed in SPD with Lean Process Improvement on Sept. 15, 2016 at 1:00 pm EDT for the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instumentation (AAMI).

Lean is becoming a common buzz word around healthcare, but often times many do not have a full understanding or appreciation of Lean principals and methods and how they can dramatically transform an organization. This webinar will provide that foundational Lean understanding and actionable application, specifically for Sterile Processing Departments (SPDs).
This webinar will provide a foundational understanding of true Lean principles, tools, techniques, and culture of continuous improvement and how these can successfully be applied to an SPD. This will address some common misconceptions about Lean as well as address problems for how to improve quality and efficiently without increasing the department's budget.
This session will also look at the experiences of some Lean SPD projects which dramatically improved the quality, lead time, employee morale, and costs of those departments and had a direct impact on the goals of the OR and patient outcomes.
