    Does anyone have an example of a value stream map for any healthcare process (e.g. surgery, ED, radiology especially)?  I’m interested to see how it has been done for healthcare practices.
    If you can email it to me at [email protected], we would appreciate it.
    Thanks,
    Bill

    We conducted a VSM at a flu clinic at the local health department. Due to available vaccine, another clinic was held a week later that enabled us to measure the effectiveness of our recommendations. We reduced both direct labor and time in the system. We hope to present the paper at the IERC-2008 Conference.
    As an IE with over 3o years experience in manufacturing, I am looking forward to applying techniques used in mfg to heatlhcare to reduce costs, improve quality and throughput.
