Healthcare is in our DNA

We have been dealing with healthcare institutions for almost ten years now, working at all levels within the organizations to solve problems, redesign and reorganize and improve operational performance. A few examples:

  1. A 13 hospital health system in the southern USA. We redesigned operating room flow, concentrating on turnaround time reduction, by optimizing supply chains, re-sequencing turn around activities and redesigning case cart setup, usage and teardown.

  2. A 4 site health system in the northeastern USA. We analyzed both clinical and pathology laboratory workflows, redesigned them according to toyota production system principles and managed implementation of the changes to a stable system.

  3. A 125 bed hospital in the midwestern USA. We analyzed and redesigned OP and IP processes to improve capacity management,quality and LOS. These improvements released $63m a year in previously consumed capacity.

  4. An independent drug screening laboratory in the northeastern USA. We analyzed existing demand and capacity management strategies, introduced improvements to flow resulting in 35% extra capacity, designed a new laboratory layout and systems and project managed the move to the new laboratory facility.

  5. A large, urban hospital system in NYC. We analyzed biomedical engineering issues around incubator availability. Redesigning this resulted in significant capital savings.

We can work on a specific project basis, or in a more general engagement for organizational improvement.
