Open Letter to a Healthcare CEO

Healthcare Chief Executive Officer

Dear Healthcare CEO:

Firstly, let me paint a picture of your Healthcare System after implementing the expertise of the Toyota Production System. The advantages of a maniacal  focus on processes:

  • Direct everyone in the organization towards success,
  • The Healthcare Organization focuses on the value they produce,
  • All smaller but often purchased items can be put into a double bin system to decrease inventory costs and increase availability,
  • Seek Perfection:
    1. Certainly, march ahead at a rate of about 1 idea a month,
    2. Focus ideas in management defined direction,
    3. Toyota will not expand to a new plant unless they have a critical mass of employees that know this procedure,
    4. This is how come no competitor will ever catch Toyota, and
    5. Your culture changes to one of winning.
  • Implement Pull wherever possible to increase process speed,
  • Adopt Lean Six Sigma to:
    1. Above all increase process velocity,
    2. Decrease process costs, and
    3. Lastly, increase process quality.
  • Success metrics will be periodically reported to management,
  • All small but often purchased items are put into a double bin system, and
  • Your organization no longer worries about the competition but welcomes them. Your System will get stronger year after year.

The Toyota Production System is a 6+ Sigma System and there’s no reason how come your Healthcare Organization cannot strive for that level of performance also. The above list is but a short summary of how your future Healthcare Organization will function.

Sincerely,

Jim FitzGerald
