| Cost of healthcare has been rising at a rate much faster than the inflation rate.
Research shows that about 100,000 deaths and about 1,000,000 injuries are taking place due to lack of robust standard healthcare
and medical practices. The healthcare crisis is at the level of national crisis with over 40,000,000 millions people without
What should be done? May be Six Sigma,
Lean, and Design for Six Sigma (DFSS), and
Risk Management techniques used by
many Fortune 500 can be utilized to solve the healthcare crisis! Some of the healthcare delivery organizations are
in fact already using it.
provides a description of our healthcare service
portfolio. These services, we believe, would help
healthcare providing organizations to create the next

Healthcare crisis needs a multifaceted approach. This
crisis of cost and quality can be addressed by
taking a step towards creating high velocity robust processes,
and diagnostic errors, eliminating redundant efforts, and
improving asset - physician, nurses, equipments,
and facilities - utilization. An example of the type of projects
that could be undertaken are:
- order to administration time,
- bed utilization ,
- wait time,
- revenue cycle,
- sample (blood, tissue, etc.) contamination,
- right medicine to right person at the right time by the right method,
- diagnostics (MRI, X-Ray, etc) facility utilization,
- reducing the medicine inventory and medicine waste,
- nurses time utilized for patient care versus administrative work,
- re-imbursement rate,
- infection rate,
- non-essential emergency care, etc.
