An article from this week in 2010… Today’s New York Times has an outstanding article about Lean Healthcare and what Seattle Children’s Hospital calls C.P.I. or Continuous Performance Improvement.
The article: “Factory Efficiency Comes to the Hospital”
I wish the headline had also addressed quality, waiting time, and staff engagement, but the article body does, at least. The article highlights Seattle Children’s Hospital, as well as others, including members of the Healthcare Value Network (Park Nicollet, Akron Children’s, and Paul Levy’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center), and Virginia Mason Medical Center. Yours truly is quoted in the article, as well.
