The Impact of COVID-19 on Lean Six Sigma in Healthcare Webinar

Date: 9/29/2022, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

The healthcare industry has predominately utilized Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) as its process improvement (PI) methodology. Over the years, more robust PI programs have evolved to using a combination of PDSA and Lean Six Sigma. During the height of surges during the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals were challenged with managing the pandemic in conjunction with managing daily operations. As a result, basic quality and patient safety initiatives became secondary to the daily chaos of managing an unknown opponent that touched every aspect of healthcare. Healthcare transitioned from a hospital mentality to a field hospital mentality.

This webinar will provide examples on how PDSA and a just-in-time approach were utilized to develop solid processes in an expedient manner to meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving environment during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
