There has been quite a bit of interest surrounding Frank Cohen’s webinars and so I would like to tell you about the next one he has scheduled for Thursday, June 18th, from 1:00-2:00pm EDT. What I like about these webinars is how current and practical the topics are. I also appreciate Frank’s ability to make even the most complex topics relatively easy to understand, and at no charge they are a great value! I would recommend attending the webinar live so that you can participate in Q. and A. but if for some reason there is a schedule conflict, they are made available on his website. Here is some more information about the upcoming topic:
“If change is the only thing that is consistent in our lives, how come we never get used to it? Healthcare is a dynamic industry with a constantly changing landscape in technology, management, regulations and economics. Being able to adapt to change is a necessity for survival. Being able to lead change is the single best way to thrive and ensure profitability. Process improvement techniques such as Lean and Six Sigma have proven themselves to be the most effective change models out there and for these to work in the medical practice, we need a way to deploy change in a fast, efficient and cost effective way.
“The solution is PDSA; Plan, Do, Study, Act. Not only is it the single most effective rapid change platform available, it is required by some specialties for recertification, enforcing its importance as both a clinical and business improvement strategy. In this session, Frank Cohen, statistician, Six Sigma Black Belt and Lean instructor, will introduce you to the concept of process improvement and the steps in the PDSA platform.”
When finished, attendees will have obtained the basic knowledge necessary to plan their own PDSA improvement projects. You can find more information or register for the webinar.
