During the Managing Risk and Performance Through Business Process Management conference last March, Makati Medical Center shared their process excellence journey.
Makati Medical Center is one the premier hospitals in the country, and knowing that they are still working on improving their services is something else. It makes you trust them more. Trust is a big thing in the healthcare industry.
Makat Med’s journey started when they reviewed their admissions process flow.
They found the following root causes of the delay in transferring a patient:
- tedious manual coordination for bed between units
- longer time spent on calls
- no visual availability of beds
- longer time spent on generation of reports
- limited room request confirmation
The solution: Lean Six Sigma…
- by creating a bed management dashboard – reduced coordination time and there’s now a real-time bed availability, thus wait time is reduced
- outsourced admissions call to a call center, thus less phone time for Admissions personnel. Through the call center, patients now have easier access.
- as a result, pre-admission activities are done faster
To further improve the hospital also did this:
Like any other improvement, Makati Med management admits that this is a continuous journey. They will study their patient care processes and will improve them. What’s important is they went right into it.
The result: The JCI Gold Seal of Approval – an affirmation of Makati Medical Center’s passion for excellent patient care.
Now you know where to go for your healthcare needs.

Toyota, the leading automotive manufacturer, has been credited for introducing an effective and efficient way of doing things. The Toyota Way, they call it, has become the bible for many manufacturing companies.
However, there has also been questions about how this strategy can be applied to other areas of the business. Process Excellence Network finds out the answers for you.
Q1 : We often think of the Toyota Production System as one of the exemplars of continuous improvement culture. Where does your Business Intelligence program fit in?
Q2 : Do you incorporate elements of the Toyota Production System – such as visual management, mistake-proofing, going to the “Gemba” and Kaizen, PDCA – into your Business Intelligence programme? If so, how?
Q3 : One of the challenges of anything that involves information technology is the length of time it takes to deliver them – by the time they get in the hands of users, the business needs have often moved on. I understand that you recently applied some lessons from a kitchen renovation you were doing to the difficult task of developing appropriate business intelligence tools. Can you elaborate?
Q4 : Engaging users throughout the process has got to be key to success; BI is only useful if business users utilise the information available to them. But it’s also critical that there are no data errors going into the system. What do you do to engage users so that they can realise the benefits’ of BI?
Q5 : Can you give me a concrete example?
Q6 : Business Intelligence has traditionally been an IT-based function. Do you think IT will continue to take the lead in Business Intelligence programmes? Should it?
Q7 : What would you say are the 3 keys for IT to provide greater business value?
