The concept of “Quality Management” as advocated by management theorists and industrial engineers has been adopted by healthcare leaders. Healthcare quality professionals use knowledge, experience, evidence, performance, and process improvement tools to manage and improve the health of the individual and populations.
I strongly believe, Industrial Engineers are desperately required in healthcare setups especially in an underdeveloped country like Pakistan as IE’s possess all the training and experience required in improving factors such as productivity, safety, and effectiveness. IE’s are able to play an essential role in improving the efficiency of the healthcare system.
In this lecture I will cover what healthcare Quality is all about and how IE’s are the best fit for this job. I will talk about all the quality initiatives we took at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Center (SKMCH&RC) and how they relate to the one’s we studied in the Industrial Engineering curriculum.
The event will be streamed live on our Facebook page.
