Pride and Joy: Using TOC to Improve Healthcare. This workshop will demonstrate how it is possible to simultaneously improve the quality of care, patient safety, patient throughput and the finances of a hospital or healthcare system without extra resources. By identifying and improving the few key leverage points in the system a reduction in length of stay and increased patient throughput can be delivered in a remarkably short timescale. The session will cover the key elements in Alex Knight’s breakthrough healthcare book entitled Pride and Joy. Each participant will receive a signed copy of Alex’s book.
