This article describes a trend in the U.S. health-care sector in which experts from other industries are recruited to help re-engineer wasteful processes. This initiative reduces costs and improves quality. According to Craig Goodrich, CFO at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, manufacturing knowledge may enhance workflow in the health care sector. One example of this recruitment strategy involved Jerry Arndt, senior vice president of business services at Gundersen Lutheran health system.
