TPMG would like to congratulate John P. Elliott for successfully completing the Lean Six Sigma Excellence in Healthcare Delivery Black Belt Certification program and earning his lean six sigma black belt! He successfully completed a rigorous 16 unit – 65 lesson online blended lean six sigma black belt workshop by passing the certification examination with distinction. The goal of Johns’s lean six sigma black belt project was to increase the utilization of his system’s infusion center. His black belt project successfully realized a 47% increase in utilization along with more than an 80% increase in daily revenue. To alleviate the staff of these impediments, the team implemented several solutions, primarily in the scheduling and communication areas. The solutions currently in place had a significant impact on Chair Turns, Net Profit, and Chair Utilization. Congratulations John!

Industrial Engineering from Mississippi State University and a Masters Degree in Hospital Administration from Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
