Always a Moderator, never a Presenter by Faye Makishima

As I reflect on the conclusion of the Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference (MESC) for 2017, it has been another success.  Although our staff submitted abstracts for the conference, we were not selected to present our material.  However, our work was still acknowledged through a session that I was asked to moderate. Every year, I volunteer [...]

Process Improvement in Healthcare by Phil Canada

Process Improvement (PI) has been used in all industries to reduce cycle time, improve quality, and lower costs.  Healthcare, specifically hospitals, was a later entrant using this methodology but PI gained significant traction and momentum in not just the “administrative” areas of hospitals, but in clinical and ancillary departments as well. A process improvement in [...]
