SEATTLE, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Virginia Mason Institute, a leading lean education resource for health care organizations, announced today the launch of its redesigned website, at virginiamasoninstitute.org.
With a goal to show the value that lean processes bring to health care, the site features:
- Streamlined registration for lean health care courses and tours
- Clear objectives and deliverables for educational experiences, including CME and CNE
- New case studies and visual guides that explain the power of a lean management method
Throughout the site, the institute shows how Virginia Mason's lean processes have led to improved patient safety, higher rates of patient and staff satisfaction, lower readmission rates, cost savings and more.
The more modern website also employs responsive design so that health care leaders and providers can easily register online for courses using desktop computers and mobile devices. For those who would like Virginia Mason Institute to speak or teach at their organization, the new contact forms enable the organization to quickly respond to client requests.
"Our faculty members lead tours and train clients every day to use our lean methods and tools, and now we're expanding upon that learning with a website that delivers greater value," said Gordon Sansaver, director of administration. "Above all, we hope to inspire health care leaders everywhere to believe that zero-defect health care is possible."
Virginia Mason Institute's emphasis on putting the patient first draws hospital executives, patient safety directors, physicians, nurses and others from all over the world to see for themselves how Virginia Mason has applied Toyota's lean production system to its hospital and clinics. As health care costs skyrocket and organizations look for new ways to improve safety and quality, health care leaders are looking for new models to emulate.
