Advancing a culture of improvements for work productivity and efficiency
Together, we can design a better patient experience through performance improvement (PI).
Proven methodologies, tools, and training to help MedStar Health associates use data to improve processes and solve challenges.
Driving continuous improvement
“Performance Improvement helped our team think through standard operating practices with a process-centered mindset. By approaching challenges as opportunities to learn, we were able to become more effective as a systemwide supply chain department.”
Vice President, System Supply Chain
The Performance Improvement (PI) Team was involved in every aspect of the EVS Performance Transformation initiative. From project conception, to current state mapping, to gap analysis, to action planning, to RFP conception and execution, to metric development, and everything in between, PI was present and leading the way. I truly believe PI was a significant catalyst to launching what has been a very successful change in EVS cost structure, process improvement, and service delivery across MedStar Health!
