Process Excellence in VA 2017

The Department of Veterans Affairs and the quality of services it provides to veterans have come under scrutiny in the last two years. As a result, the VA is taking major steps in order to improve veteran quality of care, and access to care. Although there has been some great progress over the last two years, there are still steps that must be taken to provide veterans caliber of service they deserve. By implementing Lean strategies and striving for continuous improvement the department will continue to reduce redundancies, and advance service delivery.

Process excellence initiatives will drive operational success and improve veteran satisfaction, and even more importantly will deliver high quality services to our nation’s veterans. The VA is overhauling infrastructure, leveraging mobile technology, and streamlining internal processes – all with the goal of improving veteran services. Join us for this crucial discussion with peers to understand what steps the VA is taking to meet the Department’s goals, current health IT & digitization efforts, and understand what challenges still remain

Over the course of the Summit, you will discuss and review strategies that improve veteran services, including:

  • Implementation of Lean Strategies to improve process excellence
  • Employee Engagement strategies that will improve quality of care
  • Standardization Efforts that allow for interoperability
  • Leveraging mobile technology in order to improve access to care

Join us at this timely event to review recent initiatives, and successes within the VA and discuss what steps can be taken to deliver the highest quality of care to veterans.
