Working with a large Acute University Teaching Trust, providing care across 3 sites to identify cost improvement initiatives.
In order for the Trust to meet its financial challenges and efficiency targets it was essential for the organisation to engage its employees to identify cost savings and efficiency initiatives.
The Trust engaged Linea to develop and implement a concept to promote Operations Excellence and Lean Thinking.
The concept had to appeal to senior clinicians to become an acceptable programme.
The system had to be simple to understand, easy to use and quick to update.
It had to track current and historic information to support future learning and decision making.
Financial pressures meant rapid implementation was essential.
“Linea’s Affinity5™ concept has changed the way clinical leaders manage their wards. Leaders and their teams are actively resolving problems and improving performance to ensure that they meet targets and manage budgets.”Associate Director of Nursing
