As part of its aim to increase the number of Victorians it treats from 14 to 20 per cent of the state by 2016, the Royal Dental Hospital approached LEI Group Australia to discuss how Lean methodologies and training might help achieve those targets. Together we developed a customized training plan for the organization which included Yellow, Green and Black Belt certification and a number of implementation and facilitation workshops. The training has been hugely successful, with a number of continuous and process improvement projects implemented and tangible benefits realized. Staff are engaged and motivated and we are on our way to developing a strong Lean culture within RDHM.
LEI Group Australia has proven to be a valuable partner throughout. They bring deep subject-matter expertise in Lean methodologies. However, it was their ability to draw on a breadth of implementation experience from international healthcare and non-healthcare clients and projects that really added value. The emphasis on applied learning and problem-solving meant that staff were empowered to implement changes and improvements from very early on and the focus on ongoing sustainability means we are continuing to reap the benefits. Our aim is to instil a Lean culture across the whole organization and we look forward to partnering with LEI Group Australia as we do so.
I am pleased to confirm the excellent working relationship that exists between the AHHA and Leading Edge – it is a relationship built on trust and mutual respect, sound governance and administration processes, and a shared goal of achieving better health outcomes through health system quality improvement. Our members have appreciated the healthcare-focused content of Leading Edge’s Lean management programs, with projects now being implemented across multiple hospital and primary health networks. Importantly, this work has added weight to the commitment to efficiency and quality that our health service members want to demonstrate both to funders and to patients.
