Attendees will be required to show Photo ID.

E3 Leadership is the University of Chicago Medicine's approach to continuous improvement to ensure it adapts to industry changes and challenges, to continue providing extraordinary patient care for years to come. It began its lean transformation in 2011, and evolved to a management system in 2015. Come for a trip to gemba to see how its people practice E3 Leadership to make a difference in the lives of UChicago Medicine patients.

Highlighted areas to be shared in the gemba tour include:

  • IGNITE units where inter-professional clinical and operational unit-based teams of physicians, residents, nurses, clinical and operational support members co-design and implement performance improvement with the goal improving healthcare delivery for patients. These teams are called IGNITE (Improving GME-Nursing Inter-professional Team Experiences) and many clinician participants are engaged in applying skills learned while earning their ECLIPSE (Educational & Clinical Leaders Improving Performance with Structured E3 Leadership training) certification.
  • Tiered Managing for Daily Improvement (MDI) system where multiple levels of the organization prepare for patients to be served each day, review recent performance, counter-measure defects, and execute on long-term improvement projects that align with the strategic plans of UChicago Medicine.

The University of Chicago Medicine, with a history dating to 1927, is a not-for-profit academic medical health system based on the campus of the University of Chicago in Hyde Park, and with hospitals, outpatient clinics and physician practices throughout Chicago and its suburbs. UChicago Medicine unites five organizations to fulfill its tripartite mission of medical education, research and patient care: Pritzker School of Medicine, Biological Sciences Division, Medical Center, Community Health and Hospital Division, and UChicago Medicine Physicians. https://www.uchicagomedicine.org/about-us
