Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 21, 2011
The American Hospital Association(AHA) today announced it has exclusively endorsed BMGI’s Performance Improvement & Innovation Services. AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA endorsement to products and services that help member hospitals and health care organizations achieve operational excellence. Following an extensive evaluation of service providers, BMGI’s Performance Improvement & Innovation Services were selected for the exclusive endorsement.
Hospitals are continually seeking to improve the way they provide care. The economic downturn and a national focus on health care improvement have only increased these goals. BMGI’s Performance Improvement & Innovation Services work with the hospital in an effort to eliminate waste, improve the patient experience and free resources for patient care.
BMGI achieves results using methods such as Lean Six Sigma, Change Management and Innovation to help hospitals address their most pressing challenges. Its services include training executives and departmental directors to effectively implement and use the methods to streamline operations at the department to enterprise levels, creating self-sufficiency and reducing costs.
“Cutting inefficiencies and reducing costs have become top priorities for health care leaders for maintaining their organizations’ highest level of patient care,” said Anthony Burke, President and CEO of AHA Solutions, Inc. “Hospitals look to health care experts to help identify process-improvement techniques and to support staff training for their effective implementation. BMGI’s operational performance improvement services offer the broad scope of service expertise, scalability and flexibility to accommodate individual hospital needs, dedication to transferring knowledge to internal experts and the health care knowledge necessary for today’s successful hospital.”
“With the rapidly changing landscape across most aspects of health care, hospitals must transform the way they serve their communities,” said David Silverstein, BMGI President and CEO. “The need to eliminate waste and enhance financial performance while still satisfying the ever evolving patient need is more important than ever. To this end, we are pleased that the AHA has chosen to endorse BMGI’s Performance Improvement & Innovation Services. The AHA endorsement adds another dimension to BMGI’s commitment to provide hospitals the ability to enhance value for patients, employees and their organizational culture.”
