Using TOC in Healthcare

Based upon the preliminary results of Bruce Nelson and my new book, The Critical Methodology for Theory of Constraints, Lean and Six Sigma (TLS), the interest level for using TOC in the healthcare field seems to be quite high.  I had over 100 requests for a free copy of Epiphanized and they're still coming.  For those of you who don't know, our new book was released yesterday and it looks to be doing very well, so Bruce and I thank you.

This morning, I woke up to find an absolutely wonderful article written by James Cox III, PhD, Timothy M. Robinson, MD and Wendy Maxwell.  The title of the article is, Applying "Theory of Constraints" to Solve Your Practice's Most Vexing Problem.  It's an article about how basic TOC was used to improve a medical practice significantly and cited one example of taking one medical practice from break even to + $3.5 million per year without spending much money at all.  Here is a link to this article and I encourage everyone to read it:
