Speakers: Bohdan Oppenheim

    When:  Tuesday, November 8th, 2022, 5:30 to 7:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time

    Abstract: A new process called Lean Healthcare Systems Engineering (LHSE) recently invented for improving healthcare workflows and designing new care is reviewed and compared to previous quality initiatives: PDSA, TQM, Six Sigma, Lean, Theory of Constraints, and several others. LHSE is applicable to workflow improvement or new care design projects in clinical environments, including hospitals, operating suites, emergency departments, clinics, imaging and clinical laboratories, pharmacies, population health, and telemedicine. LHSE integrates the strengths of Lean Six Sigma and Systems Engineering. Join us for our last speaker meeting of the year, led by Bohdan "Bo" W. Oppenheim, Professor Emeritus and Director (Ret.) of Healthcare Systems Engineering graduate Program at LMU.

    Presenter: Bohdan "Bo" W. Oppenheim is a Professor Emeritus and Director (Ret.) of Healthcare Systems Engineering graduate Program at LMU. The unique Program was created in partnership with Kaiser Permanente and is regarded as a premiere HSE-type program in the nation.  Oppenheim is the author of seven books, authored and co-authored chapters in six other books and published 30 journal papers.   He was honored with three Shingo Awards, INCOSE (International Council on Systems Engineering) Product of the Year Award, INCOSE Fellowship, and over $2 million in externally funded grants.  He advised over 100 master’s projects at Kaiser Permanente, UCLA Health, USC Keck/County, Providence St Joseph, Cedar Sinai, AltaMed, GVA, Boston Children’s Hospital and smaller institutions.   Born in Warsaw, Poland, he has degrees from Warsaw Technical University, Stevens IT, MIT, and U. Southampton in UK in Aerospace,  Naval and System Engineering.
