Lean start-up of a centre for pediatric emergencies
(Démarrage Lean d'un centre d'urgence de pédiatrie)
Designing an organization that is grounded in lean philosophy, where we aspire for continued quality improvement, ask the 5 Why's, perform fishbone analysis, as well as pull fishbones from kids’ throats is no easy feat. But that is what our lean startUP decided to do… create a workplace environment in which the mission remains focused on high reliability through deliberate alignment of values, principles, and systems. Easy it is not…
This is the story of Up (centre d'Urgences Pédiatriques - Centre for pediatric emergencies). The first specialized pediatric emergency centre outside of a hospital and close to home. With a specialized team and an innovative vision, we aim to deliver effective support to our health care system’s frontlines by increasing access to quality emergency services for children and teenagers. It has really only just begun. Dr Sasha looks forward to sharing it with us in hopes of triggering an awesome exchange of ideas. As the saying goes, "together we can!"
