Use of LEAN in Emergency Department Planning and Design

This program spotlights leading case studies that explore the use of lean principles in the planning and design of the emergency department. Ms. Williams will provide an overview of LEAN and recent applications for how it may be used as an essential design tool. From that context, participants examine individual case studies including project background , lean principles applied, and results achieved.  You’ll examine: simulation modeling as a method for determining facility size of an ED; the impact of an operational process on space that improves the efficiency of patient wait times; process modeling that informs the size of waiting spaces; and clinical processes that inform the design of the emergency department.
