Embedding Lean Six Sigma as an evidence-based quality performance improvement methodology will allow Bighorn Valley Health Center (BVHC) to make progress toward enhancing a systems approach toward value-based health care services. BVHC is expanding to increase access and services, merging with existing clinic sites to share expertise and resources, and extending outreach to develop community partnerships. In order to optimize clinical workflow, patient experience, and outcomes, the health center will engage various resources and expertise to train our teams to apply and practice Lean Six Sigma tools, to ensure projects and workflows are well defined, measured, analyzed, improved, and controlled. Grant funding will support the initial cost to integrate the Lean Six Sigma framework across the organization.
