Intalere works through the Virginia Mason Institute (VMI), a division of Virginia Mason Medical Center, to provide education and training in their management method known as the Virginia Mason Production System (VMPS). Based upon Toyota’s approach to lean manufacturing, VMPS is a management method that seeks to continually improve how work is done so there are zero defects in the final product. Using this method, Virginia Mason identifies and eliminates waste and inefficiency in the many processes that are part of the healthcare experience.
The programs include workshops, seminars, hands-on learning opportunities, a speaker’s bureau and consultations.
