Many thanks to those of you attended the TWI: The Link to Lean in Healthcare webinar yesterday (10/13/2009). We heard from Paul Johnson from the Purdue Technical Assistance Program. Paul is a TWI trainer who has experienced the delivery of TWI training in Healthcare and Healthcare related manufacturing, testing and packaging industries. He stressed the need for top level support and ground level follow-through for a successful adoption in any setting. The next presenter was Joan Ching from Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, who described how Lean, 5S and TWI – JI work hand and glove to attack perennial healthcare delivery problems like infection control and patient injury from falls.
Two excellent contributors. Thankyou both.
The next webinar “TWI Problem Solving” is scheduled for November 17th , 1:00 to 2:00 PM ET. Go to www.twisummit.com for registration information.
