Focusing with the end in mind: Creating a High-Performing Perioperative System
We believe a high-performing perioperative system serves your patients by consistently producing superior outcomes and serves your community and other stakeholders with consistently solid financial performance. To achieve these results, you will need to apply outstanding clinical and operational processes, and continuously develop the capabilities of your staff and infrastructure.
By using this balanced perspective, we can help to identify your improvement priorities and help you to use your scarce resources most effectively.
Structuring the Project for Success
We’ll be clear of what you can expect from us, which includes ensuring the project stays on track; stimulating creative thinking; performing the bulk of the analytic work; maintaining an unbiased perspective and performing the lion’s share of the work in preparing updates, presentations and the final report.
We’ll also be clear on our expectations for you and your perioperative team. This includes helping us gain critical insights into your environment; communicating the importance of the project to your organization; allocating appropriate resources; ensuring alignment of the organization and most importantly – demanding high performance from us all!
We Promote Outside the Box Thinking
You’ll find that as experienced and highly practical experts in quality process, we’re not wedded to any given approach such as “Lean”, “TQM”, “Six Sigma” or other quality approach “du jour”. Instead, we prefer to simply choose the right tool for the given job.
As your “third party” consultants, we like to stimulate your fresh and innovative ideas and approaches.
After all, how can one create a truly high performing perioperative system by simply “re-installing” old ideas and concepts?
