Accelerated delivery of Philips Cardiology Informatics Innovation puts the latest technology in the hands of healthcare providers faster, helping hospitals improve outcomes sooner.
The Cardiology Informatics team sparked a cultural shift across Philips Healthcare Informatics. The evolution began with a single process improvement aimed at reducing implementation cycle times of the Xper: Hemodynamic, physiological monitoring and reporting solution. The initiative resulted in increased customer satisfaction and most notably a 42% reduction in implementation process cycle times.
At the start, a remote team convened in September 2017, utilizing the Six Sigma DMAIC framework to translate “Voice of the Customer” into improvement requirements. Subsequently, the root cause became clear: excess variability and duration resulting from lack of standard work.
To drive improvements, the Cardiology Informatics Project Managers combined each other’s best practices with industry standards to create a new way of working, inclusive of a robust control plan.
As the team approached the first improvement milestone in May 2018, the needle had already moved reducing the average time by 42%. The “Continuous Improvement” culture continues and in FY18 Q3 the average implementation time dropped an additional 13%; a 55% improvement to date. In addition, variation between projects was reduced allowing for significant tightening of the control limits.
The cultural shift has led to the launch of three additional initiatives by Cardiology and an entire program established by the Radiology Informatics team. The organizational transformation has created a culture of data driven problem solving, driving strategic and sustainable improvement across Philips Healthcare Informatics.
