Initial Green Belt Project: Client Needs Assessment
Problem Statement: Currently, when a client/patient has an identified need (for example, a new winter coast), there is a lengthy assessment process involving multiple areas within the hospital. The process takes multiple days and multiple signatures to complete.
Goal Statement: This is an opportunity to streamline the process to fulfill the client/patient’s need and less staff time involved on tracking the assessment.
Noteworthy Findings: TBD
Progress to Date: Charter approval, data gathering, SIPOC and process mapping completed with the Team.
