Lean Approach to Patient Scheduling

Presented by Society for Health Systems
Oct. 27 | 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Keith A. Leitner, president and owner, Leitner Consulting Group

As healthcare resource utilization has increased, patient waiting has also risen. Past attempts to reduce waiting have usually resulted in less utilization of key resources – with huge financial implications. While this trade-off is widely known and much research and mathematical models have been published to try to optimize this trade-off, the inherent complexity of applying them to the real world schedule of most practices has been prohibitive.

This webinar will clearly illustrate the root cause of the trade-off while showing a very practical and applicable way to achieve lean patient scheduling.
