Cost-Saving Ideas on Display at Efficiency Education Fair

Several cost-saving initiatives that will save Jackson Health System millions of dollars will be on display on Aug. 5th, 2010 during the Save Jackson/Jackson Saves Efficiency Fair hosted by the Joint Labor/Management Efficiency Task Force.

The day-long event featured some of the innovative and exciting projects that are underway as employees work in conjunction with management to help save Jackson. Ongoing initiatives include simple changes like turning off the lights at Jackson to implementing clinical best practices. The event urged members to continue the mindset to bring ongoing improvements to Jackson.

Some of the projects on display included:

  • Omnicell  Inventory and Reorganization Project
  • Clinical Best Practices
  • Cost Awareness
  • Go Green strategies, including red-bag awareness and the “lights out” project
