This panel will focus on strategic partnerships and the evolution of a team and processes. Michuda Construction, an Advocate Healthcare partner, answered Advocate&rspuo's challenge of zero incidents by 2020. The project required more than applying lean terminology to existing procedures. Conversations with Purdue University led to the addition of an eager graduate student, and the journey began. This presentation will be a dynamic discussion with the team and review lessons learned, best practices, new tools, and a valued partnership.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the process to implement a lean program both from an owner and contractor perspective.
  • Describe measurable metrics applicable to any owner and contractor.
  • Identify potential pitfalls in what to assess in quality improvement programs.
  • Assess innovative tools to improve safety and communications in healthcare construction projects.
