Using Lean tools, Solaris Health System in Edison, NJ was able to significantly improve the efficiency of its surgical pre-admission testing process, leading to a 24% increase in reimbursements.

Operating room improvements were a strategic priority for Solaris. Using value stream mapping, Kaizen rapid-improvement and other Lean methodologies, the Solaris team significantly improved the efficiency of the surgical pre-admission testing process, setting the stage for higher reimbursements. From a long-term perspective, Lean Skills Transfer gave Solaris a systematic approach to enabling continuous quality improvement in other areas of the hospital as well.
