As a team, our instructors and mentors bring innovative work with leading health care systems and hospitals to you. They provide training and mentoring on high reliability concepts and the pursuit of zero harm, including Robust Process Improvement® (RPI) tools and methods. Our teams’ expertise comes from guiding health care providers exclusively in applying RPI principles to their own patient safety and quality processes, such as improving hand hygiene, improving emergency department turnaround times, or reducing medication errors, as well as operational processes, such as improving bed turnover times, reducing billing errors, or reducing staff turnover.
A team of certified process improvement experts with experience applying Lean, Six Sigma and change management skills specifically within health care settings will be guiding and mentoring the participants in this program.
