Lean Training Games in the OR

By Richard Rahn and
Gerard Leone
$12.95
 
 
 
Just about everyone learns best by doing. A pilot, for example,  needs  to  complete  some  classroom work, but much of the training will take place in the air and at the controls of a plane. This is good, but also time and fuel consuming, and a potentially risky use of an expensive resource, the plane. For that reason and more, commercial pilots log time in a flight simulator. While the simulator is not identical to actual flight, it is a valuable and much cheaper substitute for flight time.  Dangerous  procedures  can  be  practiced  over and over in a simulator, without putting the pilot and the hardware at risk, until the pilot response becomes “muscle memory”.

Lean in the OR

By Richard Rahn and
Gerard Leone
$12.95

 

 
Lean can be applied to healthcare operations, and one of the biggest areas of opportunity for improvement in a hospital is the management of the OR. This book is also available for immediate download as an ebook (PDF). Please select the ebook category to select the ebook version.

There are only two kinds of hospitals today: those who are pursuing the creation of a Lean Hospital culture, and those who will. This easy-to-read book covers some of the main elements of a Lean Hospital initiative, including the concept of waste as it applies to the OR, the glaring weaknesses of the Par Level method of supplies management (and an alternative), the Lean system of Quick Changeover in the OR, the importance of standardization using simple tools like checklists, and the central goal of staff engagement and idea generation in the never-ending work of continuous improvement.

Quick Changeover in the OR

By Richard Rahn and
Gerard Leone

$12.95

 
 
 
Most hospitals across the United States are feeling the financial pressures. There never seem to be enough resources to deliver as much care as required by the community and with the quality the hospital considers the community deserves. Staff members and administrators stretch themselves to the max to take care of all the patients that require care. The gravity of the situation is all the more evident in the Perioperative Services Department. This is a department that uses more resources than any other place in the hospital. The resources used in the Perioperative Services Department are some of the most expensive in the entire hospital, making the financial pressures even more critical.
 
 

 

 

Roadmap for the Lean Hospital

By Richard Rahn and
Gerard Leone
$24.95

 

 

This book is an introduction to Lean principles and tools as they apply to hospitals and healthcare organizations. We are at a tipping point for hospitals in the US and around the world. Competition is beginning to be a meaningful market force, when it was not a short time ago. Pressure on costs is being brought to the forefront, and usually not in the way we would like. Often staff appears to be the target for cost reductions, rather than the many forms of waste that plague the hospital. Government programs and hospital support are undergoing scrutiny, and the ability of society to support rapidly rising healthcare costs is being questioned.

Supplies Management in the OR

By Richard Rahn and
Gerard Leone
$12.95

 

 
It is rare but gratifying to come across an improvement opportunity that is large, easy to understand and demonstrate, and apparently universally needed in ORs and hospital operations in general: improvement in supplies management. If you have spent your career exclusively within hospitals, it may be hard to appreciate how dysfunctional the common practice of “Par Level” supplies management really is, or how other businesses would not even consider such a practice. For American hospitals alone, the amount of waste, i.e. work that is not really needed or that could be easily eliminated, related to supplies management boggles the mind and may total not millions but billions of dollars each year. We don’t expect you to take our word for it, however, and in the introductory chapters we’ll provide you with the tools to demonstrate the benefits for yourself.

Value Stream Mapping in the OR

By Richard Rahn and
Gerard Leone
$12.95

 

 
Value Stream Mapping is a necessary Lean tool, and the basis for an improvement plan in the OR and throughout the hospital. This book guides you through the process of creating a Value Stream Map.
 
Upon completing this book, staff will be well equipped to participate in Value Stream Mapping projects based on Lean principles. One of the first steps in a Lean initiative is the development of several Value Stream Maps, flowcharts that document all of the processes required to deliver a product or service from start to finish. A hospital will have many different value streams that will need to be developed, including the work done in the OR. The course discusses the steps to creating a Current State map, a Future State map, and a Master Plan to achieve the future state.
