The healthcare field is rapidly growing.  With growth come challenges.

Today's clinics and hospitals strive to provide the highest quality care while facing rising costs, staffing shortages, regulations, and new technologies.

  • How many nurses should be on staff, and when?
  • Where should the ICU and nurses stations be?
  • What is the most efficient way to complete paperwork?
  • Are there enough beds?
  • Is there a way to reduce waiting time?

In short, what is the best way to improve patient care and satisfaction, increase productivity and revenue, while reducing costs?

PMC's team of healthcare engineers can help. 

Our management engineering methods, when applied to healthcare, offer powerful solutions.  
These methods allow us to analyze, test, and optimize healthcare systems.

Four common root causes lead to many industry problems :
Our experts have mastered the tools and techniques needed to provide the solution :

We can provide the right mix of science, high-touch, and low-tech to create the perfect solution plan for you.

What can you expect?

PMC draws on the breadth of knowledge, experience and skills acquired by our experts over 30 years of using state-of-the-art technologies and tools to create business, process improvement, and technology solutions perfectly tailored to suit your needs.  We provide full service throughout the process, from planning and training to implementation and beyond.

Common Goals of Healthcare Improvement Projects

Patient Flow Optimization • Operating and Emergency Room Process Improvement • Patient Wait and Processing Time Reduction • Validation of Hospital Architectural Plans • Increase Patient and Staff Satisfaction

How do we do it?

Lean Healthcare

Also known as the Toyota Production System (TPS), Lean is much more than a set of tools, it is a philosophy. Continuous Improvement (Kaizen) is facilitated using tools and procedures like Value Stream Mapping (VSM), Kanbans, Error-proofing (Poka-Yoke), and the Theory of Constraints (TOC).  
Six Sigma Backed by the science of statistics, Six Sigma is a disciplined, problem-solving method aimed at reducing variation in work-related tasks and processes, with the ultimate goal of improving quality.  Traditionally used in the manufacturing sector, Six Sigma techniques are now widely used in all industries to great success. 
Discrete Event Simulation Simulation software allows our engineers to create a computer representation of any work environment.  By testing different scenarios we can find the best design for you.  Simulations allow us to identify potential bottlenecks, resource shortages, or problems likely to arise as the result of the layout or capacity.
 Laser Scanning A small team can quickly and accurately capture a 3D representation of your facility, without compromising safety.  By eliminating traditional field measuring techniques, laser scanning  records a point cloud of data that can then be translated to traditional CAD drawings, with minimal interruption to the important work of patient care.  Laser scan data can be used to validate building and layout plans before construction or remodeling begins.

Customer Feedback

"Your engineering team provided a well-organized effort in capturing difficult parameters within a hospital environment.  By constructing a graphic model, we were able to visualize patient traffic, and determine several operational conditions.”
 - Global EPCM firm, Business Leader - Health Care Studio 

"You all worked a minor miracle together to get this product [simulation model] completed!"
- Major Healthcare Architectural Firm 

"…another project has already "spun off" from the Lean [PMC Lean Implementation Project] and everyone is excited and meeting on a weekly basis!”
