What this event is about!

Patient flow is not just about increasing throughput. It is about maximising throughput, while maintaining an impeccable standard of quality, no small feat when faced with shrinking budgets, workforce obstacles and an ageing population.

However, healthcare professionals take immense pride in delivering exceptional patient care, and IQPC are thrilled to offer an opportunity to support these goals.

IQPC present to you the highly-anticipated Optimising Patient Flow Summit 2006.
Featuring an unmatched fusion of top-level overviews and practical application, this event will not only inspire you, but ensure you leave with the knowledge of how to transform your workplace results.

There are people out there doing it right. Let THEM teach YOU how to transform your workplace.

This Summit will teach you how:
• A WA hospital achieved 15% more with 6% less beds using innovative programs?
• A TAS hospital increased throughput by 20%, revenue by 20% and reduce waiting time by 20%?
• A NSW hospital servicing an ageing population dropped the access block from 60% to 22%?

• Issues covered include:
• Lean thinking
• Six sigma
• Aged care initiatives
• Capacity planning tools
• Value stream approach
• Emergency services
• Clinical pathways

This is your only chance to hear a specially tailored address from Global Guru Dr Donald Berwick, CEO and President of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (USA)
