Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiatiative
Much of PRHI’s recent work is detailed in the book, Moving Beyond Repair: Perfecting Health Care (March 2012). Moving Beyond Repair is a call for applying lean-based tools to full functionality in hospitals, physician practices and nursing homes, in order to move beyond targeted problem-solving to transforming the way both organizations and healthcare systems achieve, spread and sustain value. Its goal is to show what’s possible and to excite health providers to design their own transformations in the combined interest of quality, safety, and efficiency.
