Description

Increasing administrative responsibilities – due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models – reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. By implementing Lean principles, physicians and staff are able to become more efficient as a practice by taking steps to eliminate waste, improve efficiency and add value for the patient. Lean thinking leads to cultural change, where all team members are empowered to identify sources of inefficiency and create innovative solutions to address problems.

Diplomate Engagement

Learners must successfully complete the quiz, answering 4 out of 5 questions correctly and complete the evaluation. Participants can request a certificate upon completion.
