Réorganisation d'une unité de production hospitalière de chimiothérapies par une méthode Lean Six Sigma

Abstract : In recent years, the Lean Six Sigma has gained wide popularity in all sectors of healthcare. The hospital pharmacy in turn begins to resort to this type of method derived from industrial engineering in a context of strong economic constraints and high demands in terms of quality, safety and efficiency. In this thesis, the philosophy, methods and tools of the Lean Six Sigma are detailed and applied to a hospital chemotherapy production unit in order to reorganise it. The objective was to redefine, through a participative and collaborative project, the production processes of this unit in order to increase its efficiency while improving the well-being of the employees and their interest in their work. The DMAICS method was applied as well as the Lean tools and methods such as value stream mapping, waste search, visual management, just-in-time, self-quality, agility, standardisation and simplification. The project resulted in a smooth restructuring of the unit to the satisfaction of all. Processing times have declined, as have stocks, outstandings, movements and stress. Communication within the team has improved, and continuous improvement is gradually taking root. New potential activities with higher value-added have been revealed, so there is still some development potential. This thesis strives to report as widely the transposition of the Lean Six Sigma to a hospital chemotherapy production unit in all its variety of tools, methods and concepts with convincing results.
