Upcoming Trends in Healthcare From Key Women in the Industry
MUST attend event - Lean construction is still in tune to developers and contractors. Check out this forum and gain insight into the latest innovations.
Lean in Design Forum attendees will learn how one of Chicago’s largest owner organizations, University of Chicago Medical Center (UCM), could break free from routine, reshape its entire community and lead a Lean transformation alongside designers, general contractors and trade partners within a two-year span.
How did UCM decide to make this transformation so quickly? Rich Seiler, moderator of the panel and Unified Works Lean coach, says UCM’s Operational Excellence Team had been successfully promoting Lean thinking in its health care approach for about five years when the CFO and CEO turned their attention to Lean design and construction.
The panelists will reflect on how they saw designers benefiting at all parts of the Lean process and how their involvement enhanced projects by ensuring on-time delivery, resulting in a “win-win” for all stakeholders.
HCI Chicago wants to promote other valuable associations. In light of that, check out the upcoming AHRMM (Association for Healthcare Resources & Materials Management) March 29, 2018 event in Itasca. AMAZON Business' Mr. Scott Clausen will discuss the “CHANGING DYNAMICS OF THE HEALTHCARE SUPPLY CHAIN”

PRESENTATION BY: Joel Hossli
Joel joined J.C. Restoration (JCR) in August of 2008 after over a decade in the insurance industry. His prior experience as Property Adjuster for a national insurance carrier made Hossli the ideal choice for developing the new Claims Management Division for JCR. In this role, Hossli acted as a dedicated point of contact for the insurance adjuster, providing superb communication and efficiency on all property losses. Joel then moved into the position of JCR’s Director of Operations.
