Healthcare Kaizen: Engaging Front-Line Staff in Sustainable Continuous Improvements Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book focuses on daily continuous improvement, or Kaizen, for healthcare professionals and organizations. It shares some mechanics for facilitating Kaizen, but more importantly covers the management mindsets and philosophies required to make Kaizen work effectively in a department or as an organization-wide program. All of the examples are real healthcare examples shared by Franciscan Alliance Health System and other leading organizations, with many color pictures and illustrations of Kaizens. This book will be helpful to healthcare organizations that have embraced weeklong improvement events, but now want to move beyond just doing events into a more complete Lean management system.

Synopsis:

Kaizen can be found in a weeklong event, but many fail to note that the true Kaizen is found in the daily practice of continuous improvement. Many hospitals have initial success, but fail to move productively from platitude to practical action. This guidebook illustrates the need to balance Kaizen events with daily Kaizen and to move from project to sustainable culture. Using a combination of theory, graphic elements, and case studies, the authors discuss the role of senior leaders in the journey to achieve the true Kaizen of continual improvement.
