  1. When Lean Events or Kaizen projects are not enough… Using lean training to embed lean practice throughout the organization.

  2. Denver Health Lean Initiative • Who is Denver Health? • Why we chose Lean? • Lessons learned in the early years • Training of DH black belts • Realignment of purpose • 2009 case studies and ROI

  3. Denver Health Denver Health Medical Center Rky Mtn Regional Trauma Ctr Rocky Mtn Center for Medical Response to Terrorism 911 Public Health Regional Poison Center & Nurse Advice Line Community Health Clinics Denver Health Medical Plan School-based Health Clinics Correctional Care Denver Cares

  4. 400 bed safety net hospital Integrated outpatient clinics 140,000 unique users 300 employee physicians 5332 employees Teaching hospital Level I trauma center 3800 deliveries per year $1.1 billion per year in gross charges Uncompensated care $350 million (2009) Operating in the black for 18 years Meeting and exceeding UHC benchmarking data in 60%+ categories Denver Health Medical Center

  5. Decision, June 2005 • Health Care is being delivered in much the same way as it was 40 years ago • Health care is full of waste and inefficiencies • Other industries have successfully transformed the way they do business • Denver Health, a community safety net hospital, expects public financial reimbursement to shrink • Demand for services are up • We (as an industry or institution) have no cohesive approach to quality and productivity improvement

  6. Getting It Right • Transforming Denver Health • Getting it Right = Perfecting the Patient Experience • Patricia Gabow, MD I.T Right People Right Process Right Communication Right Environment Right Reward

  7. Choosing a Methodology • Consulted with industry leaders • Chose Lean methodology and Toyota Production System to transform delivery of health care • Simple, intuitive • Drives culture change • Quality and financial ROI “Saving lives, saving money, saving jobs!”

  8. Lean is a people driven process, …”At Toyota we build people before we build cars.”Toyota

  9. Invest in People • Best and the brightest people to lead not manage the transformation… • Characteristics • Work well in teams • Identify and solve problems • Love to learn • Are innovative, early adopters • Excel at communication

  10. The Launch • MAMTC: Mid-America Manufacturing Technology Center® • Training of 50 Denver Health managers, supervisors, physicians, and other organizational leaders completed by spring, 2005 • DH Black Belts (BBs) utilize lean for daily improvements and to conduct Rapid Improvement Events

  11. Performing Kaizen Events:The Early Days • Coordinated by Director of Health Services Research • Utilized DH Black Belts as facilitators, team leads, and process owners • Realized some success but difficulty with event preparation and follow-up

  12. Step off the edge… • 5S everywhere • VSA the operative services (this would be our model value stream) • 5 rapid improvement events (RIE) in the OR… the same week! (What were we thinking?)

  13. Early Lean Victories • Organization-wide 5S…Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, Sustain • 5S of medical offices, clinics, nursing units, engineering, respiratory therapy, and the lab, ambulances, storage areas…pretty much everywhere! • Immediate positive feedback

  14. Black Belts Phase I • Train “leaders” in the organization • 50 the first year • Monthly reports • $$ value of efforts • Independent of value streams and lean events • Expectation to be a team lead on two rapid improvement events

  15. Black Belt Projects: Big and Small • Engineering: $448,275. in supply expenses • Acute Care: 657 cans of tube feeding (approx $2,000./year) returned • Address discrepancies in billing patient bed types in SICU for trauma and isolation patients $381,790.

  18. Results: Year One + 40 rapid improvement events $3.5 million saved or new revenue identified 236 employees engaged 50 black belts trained

  19. Sample Events RIE • Surgical infection rate (quality) • Clinic flow (increased productivity) • Financial agreements (improved revenue) • Room turnover ophthalmology (efficient use of resources)

  20. Surgical Site Infection RIE June 2005

  21. Provider Flow CellRIE September, 2006

  22. Ophthalmology Room Turn

  23. Rethinking, Phase II • Many successful RIE events, good ROI • New Lean Systems Improvement Department with Senior Facilitator and Simpler Business Systems sensei • Expanded from 5 to 14 value streams • Full time facilitators (7) • However…Black Belt projects $$ROI flat!

  24. Bringing Black Belt Training In-House • Spring 2007 • Training organized into three categories: II. Tools Used to Eliminate Waste: Standard Work, 5/6S, Visual Management, Mistake Proofing, Kan Ban-Pull Systems, Flow Cells, Level Loading, Quick Changeover, Production Control Board I. Tools Used to Identify Waste: Process Map, Spaghetti Diagram, Communication Circle, Waste-Walk,, Time Observation, Takt Time, Bar Charts, Fishbone Analysis III. Using Tools in Focused Manner: RIEs, Value Stream Analysis, 2P/3P

  25. DH Black Belts? • All BB nominees come from the executive staff • All black belt trainees are selected by the CEO • 50+ BB train each year • 60 hours of training • Advanced BB training 24 hours • All departments represented • Middle management level and above

  26. RIE + Black Belt Savings Trend

  27. Current State • 172 BB trained • 150 remain in organization • January 2009 accountable for ROI for projects of $30,000. each for year • Do bi-monthly reports • Financials vetted by budget analysts • Reports and results reported on SharePoint site • Additional financial incentives if BB exceeds financial goals

  29. Phase III, What’s Working? • Created an alignment of purpose • BB have accountability to $$ metric • Value streams have accountability to a $$ metric • Organization is accountable for $30 Million from Lean efforts (2009)

  30. Case Studies2006-2009

  31. Lab Savings • Savings: • Reagent and Supply Savings: $88,000/5yr • Maintenance Contract Savings: $5,500/yr • SpecTrak Software at no cost: $25,000/1X • FTE: • Maintenance on multiple platforms: 257 hrs/yr • Decreased QC Prep and Runs: 888 hrs/yr • Auto-verification of Normal Results: 893 hrs/yr • Bring more testing in-house to decrease referral testing costs (HCV, Vitamin B12) $31,000 in 2008 • In progress: Flow Cytometry, BNP, HIV Gene Prove ID, PCR for Infectious Disease

  32. Black Belt Projects: Good to the Last Puff! • Black belts need to question establish processes to determine if there is a better way. • Combining with peers creates results • $200,000 + predicted savings The Wastes this project eliminates: Overproduction, Inventory, Over-processing
