MTM Conferences - 2014


In recent years access to the health-care has expanded, with millions gaining coverage under the Affordable Care Act. With greater access, emphasis now turns to guaranteeing that care is both affordable and high-quality. Rising health-care costs are an important determinant of our nation’s fiscal future, and they also affect the budgets for states, businesses, and families across the country.

Health-care costs now approach a fifth of our nation’s economy; careful reviews suggest that a significant portion of those costs does not lead to better health or better care. Other industries use a range of systems-engineering approaches to reduce waste and increase reliability, and health care could benefit from adopting some of these approaches. As in those other industries, systems engineering often produces dramatically positive results in the small number of health-care organizations that implemented such concepts.

These efforts have transformed health care at a small scale, such as improving the efficiency of a hospital pharmacy, and at much larger scales, such as coordinating operations across an entire hospital system or across a community. Systems tools and methods, moreover, can be used to ensure that care is reliably safe, to eliminate inefficient processes that do not improve care quality or people’s health, and to ensure that health care is centered on patients and their families. Notwithstanding the instances in which these methods and techniques have been applied successfully, they remain underutilized throughout the broader system.
