Case Studies in Process Improvement
Cutting Laboratory Cost through Process Improvement
Expires January 20, 2016
The Central Clinical Laboratory (CCL) is a highly automated, high volume laboratory. They have recently implemented new chemistry analyzers and are continuously reviewing ways to improve our processes with the new technology, six sigma and lean processes.
Video Length:12 mins
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Explain how the CCL measured their current process verses future processes
- Relate how "Thinking outside the box" led to little changes that added up
- Cite data that supported the change
This series is intended for laboratory administrators and managers, quality assurance and control staff, supervisors, and other laboratory personnel dedicated to continuous process improvement.
