Metro South Health recently celebrated the Innovation Sprint Series Showcase, a program where frontline teams explored, identified and implemented initiatives to improve access to care for our patients.
This Series focussed on solution design in high-demand areas including emergency departments, gastroenterology, specialist outpatients and elective surgery.
More than 30 initiatives commenced across Metro South, ranging from improving communication across clinical units to optimising theatre management and developing educational models to upskill staff.
The showcase provided teams the opportunity to creatively share their accomplishments and insights gained from their initiatives, including demonstrated improvement, sustainability, innovation, and collaboration.
