The Performance Excellence module from Siemens Healthineers Value Partners encompasses several discrete but complementary offerings: Value Stream Analysis, Rapid Improvement Events (RIE), and Utilization Consulting.
A Value Stream Analysis focuses on all the steps of your work process that are necessary to deliver value. It allows you to visualize every task that your team works on. This helps you identify the places where you can improve your process by visualizing both the value-adding and wasteful steps. Even individual contributors can have a view of how the team’s work is progressing and envision how they might be able to enhance performance both individually and as part of the team.
Imagine seeing an improved working environment and enhanced patient experience in just days. That is the promise of Rapid Improvement Events, short-term, high-impact workshops driven by key performance indicators and based on the Kaizen methodology for continuous improvement. Generally offered as a 5-day workshop, followed by a 30-day implementation and measurement phase, an RIE is a great way to jump-start organizational change and get some quick “wins”.
Utilization Consulting assists you in revealing the hidden and unrealized potential of your valuable equipment by means of a detailed assessment of utilization, protocols, and workflows. It goes beyond simple demand/capacity estimating to deliver insight on how your staff is making use of the equipment, and how they can be more efficient and effective.
