Quality Improvement in Hospital Medicine
Members of the hospitalist group actively participate in multiple hospital and regional committees. We also embrace the LEAN philosophy and participate in Rapid Improvement Events. A number of hospitalists have been trained in Toyota Management Lean principles used to improve efficiency and reduce waste. This system is used in many manufacturing industries to streamline processes and make them more efficient. Part of our commitment is to heartily participate in quality improvement. Our administration looks to the knowledge and experience of our hospitalist group to identify and solve problems throughout the hospital.
