Every organization is trying to do more with less. This is especially true throughout the healthcare industry – where inefficiencies in operations not only affect the bottom line, but can also impact the quality of patient care at every level.
Northern Lights Systems Navigation has the solution – one that could increase capacity, decrease inefficiencies, reduce costs and optimize operational effectiveness.
Using a methodical process we’ve developed, we collect data, assess current throughput and use simulation modeling to create a customized solution for our clients that improves patient flow management while providing performance optimization throughout an organization.
Simulation Modeling and Consulting
Based on computer generated simulation modeling, our collaborative approach allows clients to sequence near-term and long-term solutions, and provide flexibility to re-examine options as influencing factors evolve over time. The ability to provide our clients data-driven options and models for maximum impact is a hallmark of our projects. In each project, we begin by critically evaluating the current state of patient throughput. From that baseline we develop and evaluate robust recommendations to capitalize on existing opportunities, and maximize impact for the future.

Process Modeling Workshops
The purpose of process mapping is for understanding and as important, documenting the current processes in your facility and helping define a better or more efficient process in the future. It involved the gathering and organizing of facts about the work and displaying them so that they can be questioned and improved by knowledgeable people.
Our workshops provide the best forum for your team to learn how to effectively complete process maps for your organization.
Lean Six Sigma Training and Implementation
Northern Lights is a Lean Six Sigma organization. Simulation is an advanced Lean Six Sigma capability. We have online training for Green, Black, and Master Black belt certificates. We also assist on a project basis providing support and mentoring as required by our clients. Implementation services on a facility-based level are also provided by our staff and associates.
Operations Research and Systems Analysis
Northern Lights helps you improve decision-making and efficiency. Some of our primary tools include statistical analysis, queuing theory, linear programming, and mathematical modeling.
