Implementing Lean Management System and Lean Six Sigma in Healthcare Settings.
You are the chairperson of the hospital’s quality improvement committee. The committee is planning to introduce Lean Management Systems (LMS) and Lean Six Sigma (LSS) to the organization as a newly adopted framework to increase the quality and efficiencies of healthcare delivery, as outlined in the health sector transformation program of Saudi Vision 2030.
For this assignment, you will create a presentation for staff that achieves the following:
Provide a brief history of CQI in healthcare and an introduction to LMS and LSS. Include how this aligns with the aims of the Saudi Vision 2030 health sector transformation program.
Analyze the benefits of using LMS and LSS as it applies to improving patient outcomes.
Describe the application of LMS and LSS to healthcare. Include examples of recent achievements of healthcare systems in Saudi Arabia that have implemented LMS and LSS.
Select a department to pilot the implementation of LMS and LSS. Determine what information you need from the staff to make the implementation of LMS and LSS successful. Provide two examples of a strategy to collect this information.
Your PowerPoint should meet the following requirements:
Be 10-12 slides in length, not including the title or reference slides.
Be formatted according to APA writing guidelines.
Provide support for your statements with citations from a minimum of six scholarly articles.
Each slide must provide detailed speaker’s notes to support the slide content. These should be a minimum of 100 words long (per slide) and must be a part of the presentation.
