Challenges with access and capacity are leading to increasingly long wait times for patients and exhaustion and overwhelm for our teams. With workforce resources already stretched, running harder and faster will not work. We need better ways to improve our work to reduce the burden of work and begin making immediate and sustainable improvements to reduce wait times and increase access for patients. Practical insights in this webinar will help you understand how to address access, capacity and backlogs with a unified improvement approach.
