Project Description

Lean-Six Sigma Education and Training

Why settle for incremental improvement?

Throughout the US and Canada, healthcare organizations are using Lean to achieve breakthrough results. A few of clients’ accomplishments after using Lean techniques to resolve programmatic inefficiencies include:

  • Reduced testing turnaround time by 77%
  • Reassigned FTEs for annual savings of over $900
  • Consolidated workspace for construction avoidance savings in the millions of dollars

An analysis of clients’ organization and facilities generally identifies countless opportunities to save wasteful steps, better organize supplies, put equipment within easier reach – all improving staff efficiencies and effectiveness and assisting to reduce total case-time. Lean provides a proven and systematic way of streamlining organizations’ workflow, eliminate waste and enable organizations to sustain successes. Lean is doing more with less. It is the methodical approach to eliminating wasted efforts and lost revenue in your organization – doing more business, performing more cases, increasing margin per case all without increased resource expenditure.

If your organization’s program is plagued by inconsistent results, needlessly long case times or extensive rework, Six Sigma is the tool designed to turn your program around. Frequently consultants fail in implementing Six Sigma methodology in the OR; typically these consultants are engineers who do not understand the operating room. Training individuals on your staff in Six Sigma techniques and process thinking results in the highest level of continuous quality improvement, sustained program change resulting in sustained program efficiency and marketability. Increased efficiency results in increased margin per case; improved marketability results in increased surgeon and patient satisfaction and increased cases. Concurrently combining increased margin per case and increased case volume results in dramatic improvement of program profitability.

The combination of Lean and Six Sigma in your organization results in the ability to do more with less and sustain that redesigned program structure on-going.

OR Efficiencies, LLC is aligned with Johnson & Johnson’s Lean – Six Sigma training program of ValuMetrix University to bring your organization resources and learning tools in Lean Six-Sigma process improvement applications.

Client Testimonials

  • My hospitals department of anesthesiology was falling apart due to stresses of the operating room.

    My hospitals department of anesthesiology was falling apart due to stresses of the operating room.

    We lost a number of doctors and I feared losing my CRNAs because of our issues. Jerry personally assisted me to bring stability to the anesthesiology program and his team improved OR efficiencies and general operations so that now we're able to recruit and retain highly skilled anesthesia staff.

  • The hospital CEO and the dean made it my responsibility to fix the OR without holding any other parties accountable.

    The hospital CEO and the dean made it my responsibility to fix the OR without holding any other parties accountable.

    Our anesthesiology program was greatly in deficit due to the staffing costs associated with a terribly inefficient OR. I was losing faculty and could not recruit to our program due to the imbalance of work-load and compensation package. Jerry brought facts and education. He assisted in mediating our relationships and educated us on how to move forward. The assistance Jerry provided me and my program assisted me not only to improve our present situation and be successful in my position but also to move on in my own career.
