Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Hospital Laboratory
The goal of this project was to reduce lead times for sample processing caused by the increased sample volume received by a laboratory with limited technician capacity. Cluttered work space, distractions, and lack of a technology-based tracking system all affected the time for sample processing at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Hospital laboratory, Bedford. Observing and measuring the pre-analytical work-flow enabled the team to use lean methods to suggest changes, develop plans for evaluating results, and outline actions for sustainability.
