The idea that the United States' health care delivery system must be changed has reached a tipping point. Daily, we are bombarded with health care news at the levels of government, organizations, and individuals.
Objectives of the Presentation
Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will learn how to:
Why Should you Attend
- Understand why systems engineering is critical for business survival
- Understand the science of systems engineering
- Using systems engineering to improve safety, reliability, and effectiveness
- Reduce costs dramatically
- Understand how to manage for trustworthiness
- Engage all employees to work as a one big team
The health care delivery system is a multi-level system requiring numerous levels of analysis. Recently the President's Advisory Council on Science and Technology in the USA recommended that the government require healthcare organizations to use systems engineering to transform healthcare quality, safety, reliability, productivity, and cost reduction. Some hospitals have used system engineering methods to make dramatic improvements. This webinar will cover the theory, current practices, best practices, and applications.
