Have you ever created a new process or solution for a problem, only to learn later that there were other causes contributing to the issue? Do you ever hear “we need more people – we’re just short staffed”? Getting to the root of the cause can be challenging sometimes. This webinar is full of real world, practical examples, and tools to help you identify and measure the RIGHT problem to focus effort and resources on. Learn how the “Lean” methodology used by Toyota to make automobiles can be applied in a simple way to a physician practice to identify workflow and inefficiency issues in your practice.
