The gap between conducting functional performance evaluations (FPEs) and integrating the findings into design and operation begs the question, are FPEs worth the investment? To address this concern, this session will weigh the cost against the value of conducting FPEs. Use of Lean principles to reduce cost, and use of communication and dissemination strategies to increase value to firm, facility, and industry will be discussed. This session will enable attendees to:
Assess the cost of conducting FPEs and identify strategies to reduce this cost.
Discover Lean approaches to streamlining standard FPEs.
Discuss the value of FPEs, and how it can be maximized by simple and strategic communication and open sharing of information.
Identify opportunities to use FPEs as benchmarking data to inform design and the health care practice.
