Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of the MedBoard medication tracking system, is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar presented by Eric S. Kastango, MBA, RPh, FASHP, CEO of Clinical IQ, on eliminating waste with lean processes with “When Going Lean, Waste Is the Enemy.”
Kastango will examine the principles of DOWNTIME, an acronym for the eight process wastes: Defects, Over-production, Waiting, Non-utilized Resources/Talent, Transportation, Inventory, Motion, and Excess Processing. These can be used to identify waste or non-value added activities as they relate to medication order processing.
During this webinar, Kastango will show how implementing Lean methodologies and Six Sigma practices can streamline medication workflows and optimize cleanroom practices.
