Chapter News

10/08/2019 - Dayton Chapter - September News
Our September meeting featured Benjamin McCall from Sinclair Workforce Development. His topic was “Raise the Bar – Planning, Setting & Achieving Goals”. His presentation was very informative and the tools he provided will be helpful as we set our own professional and personal goals. The information can also assist in coaching employees to reach their goals. In summary, these are five steps in goal setting: 1. Set goals that motivate you. 2. Build goals on the SMART framework. 3. Put Goals in writing. 4. Create an action plan. 5. Build in accountability. The SMART framework outlines the specific attributes needed. Goals must be Specific, Measurable, Action-oriented, Realistic and Time-bound. It is necessary to think with the end in mind and look at what you want to accomplish, what needs to be changed, what behaviors may need to change, and what should be improved. It is also important to define and differentiate short-term goals, medium-term goals and long-term goals.

09/09/2019 - Dayton Chapter - August News
Our August mini-seminar featured Joseph Valvona, Jr., MS, MBA, CSSMBB from Breakthrough Performance Group. Mr. Valvona provided presented the concepts and tools of Lean Six Sigma and how to improve patient satisfaction, quality of care, and efficiency. At the completion of the seminar, attendees received their White Belt certificate for Lean Six Sigma. He reminded attendees to use the intellect of our staff members, along with their knowledge and involve them to look at making improvements. There are eight forms of waste, but in our practices the most common are likely staff downtime, not fully utilizing the staff, and having excess processes. With LEAN, the focus is to strive for continuous flow and eliminating the waste. Utilizing LEAN Six Sigma tools to make improvements can help team-building, cross-training, employee engagement, involvement and development, while employees gain a mutual trust and respect for one another. Our September meeting will feature Benjamin McCall from Sinclair Workforce Development, presenting, “Raise the Bar – Planning, Setting & Achieving Goals”.

08/09/2019 - Dayton Chapter
Our July meeting was very informative as Robin Coale, MHA, Principal Medical Staff Trainer for Premier Health Partners presented, “Technology and Data Management – Office 356 & Excel.” As most of us learn by doing, Robin suggested that if you are new to Office 365 to “Take a Tour” in each of the Microsoft programs. She had many shortcuts and tips for Excel, including: • Setting option allows you to use letters on the left and numbers across the top in the spreadsheet. • Control & dragging copies (not only in Excel). • Right mouse to duplicate formatting tab color • Auto sum has a drop-down arrow for other options that may be helpful • Google is a great resource for Excel formulas. • Print options allows you to print rows that you need to print on each page • Back slash is located under the back space • If using “Merge and Center”, do it last. Robin also provided an Excel Quick Reference Card that attendees found very useful including some basic fundamentals for Excel and several keyboard shortcuts. For free quick references, visit: Our mini-seminar will be held August 28. Joseph Valvona, Jr. will present the concepts and tools of Lean Six Sigma and how to apply this methodology to improve patient satisfaction, quality of care, and efficiency.
