Healthcare Six Sigma GreenBelt

Healthcare lean six sigma is a rigorous and disciplined process improvement methodology that uses data and statistical analysis to measure and improve hospitals operational performance. Wieaw would be happy to help hospitals in improving their processes by healthcare lean six sigma training and Implementation.
A Certified Healthcare Lean Six Sigma Green professional has a deeper understanding and knowledge about Lean Six Sigma Methodology. They may lead improvement projects and / or serves as a team member as a part of more complex improvement projects lead by a Certified Black Belt. A Healthcare Lean Six Sigma Green Belt have a thorough understanding about the various deliverables in the phases of Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC). A Healthcare Lean Six Sigma Green Belt understands how to implement, perform, interpret and apply Lean Six Sigma at a high level of proficiency.

Healthcare Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Requirements: No specific requirements
Training Duration: 4 Days
Certification: Online/Offline exam for 1 hour; Passing %: 70%
Target Audience: Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacists, Biomedical Engineers, Lab Technicians, Hospital Administrators, Safety Officers, Quality Analysts, Quality Mangers, Auditors, Project Managers

Programme Objectives:
The aim of this programme is to impart participants with skills in analysing and improving processes using the Lean Six Sigma approach. Upon completion of this training, participants would have mastered the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC methodology and learnt the in-depth concepts and tools needed to accomplish Green Belt level projects. Lean Six Sigma projects so far in the health-care have focused on direct care delivery, administrative support and financial administration processes with projects focusing on
1. Reducing number of brands of drugs in pharmacy
2. Reducing inpatient waiting time during the discharge process
3. Reducing outpatient waiting time in the hospital
4. Improving satisfaction level of patients
5. Reducing injury on duty
6. Streamlining the Patient transfer to in patient wards
7. Reducing queuing time for patient blood taking
8. Improving patient satisfaction in Accident and Emergency (A&E)
9. Reducing turn-around time in preparing medical reports
10. Reducing cycle time in various inpatient and outpatient diagnostic areas
11. Reducing number of medical errors and hence enhancing patient safety
12. Reducing errors from high-risk medication
13. Reducing medication ordering and administration errors
14. Increasing productivity of health-care personnel
15. Increasing accuracy of laboratory results
16. Increasing accuracy of billing processes and thereby Reducing the number of billing errors
17. Improving bed availability across various departments in hospitals
18. Reducing number of postoperative wound infections and related problems
19. Improving MRI exam scheduling
20. Improving turn-around time for pharmacy orders
21. Improving nurse or pharmacy technician recruitment
22. Reducing length of stay in A&E
23. Reducing inventory levels
24. Improving patient registration accuracy
25. Reducing patient registration time
