Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781439895382
Release Date: 2011-04-22
Genre: Medical

In a unique and integrated approach, The Definitive Guide to Emergency Department Operational Improvement: Employing Lean Principles with Current ED Best Practices to Create the "No Wait" Department exposes you to the academics behind managing the complex service environment that is the ED. The book combines applied management science and ED experience to create a model of how to improve your emergency department operations. After summarizing the current state of emergency medicine, the book offers an in-depth presentation of Lean tools used in the ED along with basic and advanced flow principles grounded in queuing theory and the theory of constraints. It then shows how these concepts are applied in the emergency department and why they work, supported by a comprehensive case study in which Lean principles were used to transform an underperforming ED into a world-class operation. The authors highlight three commonly referenced intervals in the ED: door to doc (input), doc to disposition (throughput), and disposition to departure (output). After reviewing best practices, the authors explain how to achieve excellence in your own environment by discussing change management, leadership, dealing with resistance, and other critical elements of creating a culture of change. Under any scenario realized by healthcare reform, this book provides the tools and concepts to improve your ED for patients, staff, the organization, and ultimately, society.

Dynamic Capacity Management for Healthcare

Author: Pierce Story
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 1439819769
Release Date: 2016-04-19
Genre: Medical

While hospitals can learn from other industries, they cannot be improved or run like factories. With work that is more individualized than standardized, and limited control over volume and arrivals, even the leanest-minded hospital must recognize that healthcare systems are more dynamic than nearly any work environment. Written with the creativity needed to navigate the rapidly changing landscape of healthcare, Dynamic Capacity Management for Healthcare: Advanced Methods and Tools for Optimization presents the unique new tools, methodologies, and thinking required of healthcare systems that want to survive and thrive in a reduced reimbursement, higher-cost world. Demonstrating his approaches and recommendations through case studies specific to the complex issues of healthcare delivery, Pierce Story, a long-time and passionate healthcare operations expert, shows how hospitals and health systems can make leaps in performance in an environment in which both financial and human resources are shrinking as expectations for clinical perfection continue to rise. Through its unique approach to the dynamic management of complex care systems, this volume raises the bar for what is possible. This text presents an excellent opportunity for healthcare’s change agents to meet the challenges and responsibilities of our day.

Discrete Event Simulation for Health Technology Assessment

Release Date: 2015-10-16
Genre: Business & Economics

Discover How to Apply DES to Problems Encountered in HTA Discrete event simulation (DES) has traditionally been used in the engineering and operations research fields. The use of DES to inform decisions about health technologies is still in its infancy. Written by specialists at the forefront of this area, Discrete Event Simulation for Health Technology Assessment is the first book to make all the central concepts of DES relevant for health technology assessment (HTA). Accessible to beginners, the book requires no prerequisites and describes the concepts with as little jargon as possible. The book first covers the essential concepts and their implementation. It next provides a fully worked out example using both a widely available spreadsheet program (Microsoft Excel) and a popular specialized simulation package (Arena). It then presents approaches to analyze the simulations, including the treatment of uncertainty; tackles the development of the required equations; explains the techniques to verify that the models are as efficient as possible; and explores the indispensable topic of validation. The book also covers a variety of non-essential yet handy topics, such as the animation of a simulation and extensions of DES, and incorporates a real case study involving screening strategies for breast cancer surveillance. This book guides you in leveraging DES in your assessments of health technologies. After reading the chapters in sequence, you will be able to construct a realistic model designed to help in the assessment of a new health technology.
