YesCare Lean Improvement Program
The YesCare Lean Improvement Program strives to improve clinical quality and patient safety through a standardized process improvement modality. Our program uses a combination of Lean and Six Sigma techniques, the benchmark for consistent and superior results in the healthcare and manufacturing industries. Lean improvement is utilized to remove waste from processes, reduce variations and minimize constraints. By removing process defects and other forms of waste, a higher level of quality, safety and operational excellence can be achieved within the correctional setting. To excel, teams must understand the concepts of lean improvement and utilize the tools from the YesCare CQI Lean Project Workbook, which helps organize and track each improvement project.
YesCare certifies staff in Lean Six Sigma through our partnership with goLeanSixSigma which we believe is an industry first.
YesCare is one of the few correctional healthcare companies in the country that is participating with a federally qualified Patient Safety Organization (PSO), the Center for Patient Safety.
The PSO safeguards all YesCare’s quality and patient safety data as Patient Safety Work Product (PSWP), confidential and protected by legal privilege in accordance with the Federal Patient Safety & Quality Improvement Act. This establishes a “safe haven” for critical analysis, crucial for elevating our delivery of care.
Participation in the PSO also provides access to a variety of resources that enhance our reporting processes and facilitate learning and sharing – all designed to improve patient safety and quality of care.
YesCare utilizes the principles of YesCareSMARTER to support our team members in upholding the highest standards of professionalism and service for our patients, clients, co-workers and vendors. YesCareSMARTER is based on the principles of Safety, Motivation, Accountability, Respect, Teamwork, Evaluation and Readjustment which are the foundation for how all YesCare employees must conduct themselves on the job. Everything we do adheres to the values of YesCareSMARTER.
YesCareSMARTER sets us apart from other correctional healthcare providers. By incorporating these principles daily, we are able to support our clients in achieving their goals for their healthcare programs.
By nature of housing individuals whose criminal cases are being adjudicated, prisons are transitory, uncertain, and often tense environments. Often triggered by a bad phone call with a loved one or an unexpected outcome in court, violent reactions resulting in self-injury, injury to others and suicides can be prevented. YesCare’s approach to prevention is rooted in awareness and communication. We all have a role to play in preventing crises and we are committed to increasing everyone’s ability to do so. YesCare’s crisis hotline is available anytime, day or night, to the patient and anyone interacting with an incarcerated individual. YesCare’s dedicated team of crisis interveners will triage incoming calls and alert our site-level care providers to patient’s need for immediate intervention. By leveraging the collective ability of all intersecting systems that interact with the incarcerated population, we can reduce self-harm and, potentially, the harm of others.
Over 40 years, the YesCare team has provided quality healthcare services to clients at more than 475 facilities serving over 1,000,000 patients across the nation.
With its corporate headquarters in Texas, YesCare is the pioneering provider of correctional healthcare services in
the United States.
