High Ticket Elective Surgeries

Get The Very Best Healthcare

At a Much Lower Price

Toyota and Motorola popularized Six Sigma or “lean production” methods. In short, “lean” means an all-out quest for efficiently delivering the highest quality outcome. We are now seeing the first wave of hospitals embracing this modality. The results being far higher quality outcomes while also achieving significantly lower costs.  

The Basic Make-up of a Center of Excellence

With a Center of Excellence your benefits are:

  • Superior outcomes for procedures

  • Lower cost due to lean management efficiency, i.e. Six Sigma

  • Physician financial incentive not based on volume

  • Lower rate of unnecessary surgery due to “differential diagnosis”

  • Physicians function as teams

The right answer is exactly the opposite of wellness programs spending large sums to reduce long-term risks on an unmotivated population.  Rather, a small percentage of our working population needs major interventions and is highly motivated to find the best ones.”
