Six Sigma Green Belt for Healthcare
3 Days | 2.1 CEUs

Overview:

Learn how to integrate principles of business, statistics and engineering to achieve tangible results. Master the use of Six Sigma to quantify the critical quality issues facing healthcare. Once the issues have been quantified, statistics can be applied to provide probabilities of success and failure. Six Sigma methods increase productivity and enhance quality. As a Six Sigma green belt, you will be equipped to support and champion Six Sigma implementation in your healthcare organization. To earn the Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate, you will be required to pass IIE's green belt exam.

During this course you will have the opportunity to apply what you have learned to an actual issue you face in your organization. Prior seminar participants have reported significant savings from implementing their projects.

  • A financial services organization saw $128,000 in cost savings per quarter when they reduced transaction processing rework
  • A drug store chain save $173 million by managing its inventory of prescription medications more effectively
  • A regional hospital saved $300,000 annually by eliminating duplication of services
  • A state agency reduced project cost over-runs by 28 percent
  • A large urban hospital reduced length of stay and was able to postpone a proposed expansion thereby deferring over $7 million in capital expenditures.
