EHQ 400 – Healthcare Quality Professional Certificate Program

Lean Six Sigma + Radical Change + Project Management = Transformational Healthcare

Healthcare is a basic human need. Critics argue that the current healthcare industry in the United States does not deliver equivalent value for the money. Patients, physicians, payers, facilities, and products all contribute to the intense pressure on a system that is needs to be improved.

Bryant's Healthcare Quality Professional Certificate course directly supports healthcare transformation by offering three areas of focus to address critical deficiencies within the current healthcare delivery system model.

  • The need for timely identification of and the elimination of medical errors and waste
  • End-to-end assessment and re-construction through radical change of key medical delivery processes
  • The need to understand and recognize the value of structured planning and execution of health care initiatives, utilizing project management best practices including stakeholder and requirements analysis

 

This certificate program consists of three sections:

Quality in Healthcare: Six Sigma and Lean Thinking

This section teaches the current best practices of Six Sigma and Lean Thinking for healthcare applications. Six Sigma tools and techniques focus on the reduction of errors, and Lean Thinking concentrates on increasing speed of completion through the elimination of waste. 

Reengineering Healthcare: Radical Change

Reengineering is a method of improvement that employs radical versus incremental change. In this section we address the application of reengineering concepts to healthcare needs. Assessment techniques and end-to-end rebuilding is critical to a successful reengineering process. 

Project Management in Healthcare: Guiding Successful Transformations

This section builds upon a basic overview of project management and progresses to the application of how to successfully create, implement, and manage clinical and non-clinical projects. Quality and reengineering projects are also considered project initiatives.
