Employee Ideas Program
|Employee Suggestions and Solutions are Key to the Success of the Department of Medicine!|
The Department of Medicine is a complex organization with dedicated people "Changing What's Possible" by making incredible things happen every day!
Because of our Department's size and complex day-to-day activities, it isn't always possible to transform a useful suggestion or proposed solution into an operational improvement. However, with increasing financial challenges, it's more important than ever to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and maintain the best systems for our customers (patients, students, and MUSC colleagues).
So, how often do you think to yourself....?
I know a better way to do this....
If we changed the way we do this ...we could save a lot of money by....?
This process is outdated...why don't we....?
I can fix this...if I just knew who to talk to....?
I've heard people complain about that a thousand times....why can't we just ....?
We can make this easier for our patients, customers, and employees if we just....?
This is a hassle every time....why don't we try.....?
Each employee, no matter their role in the Department, has the potential to offer excellent ideas and solutions.
Therefore, the DOM created a portal (below) to submit suggestions and to offer solutions to improve operations. You will hear back from someone on the Ideas Triage Team once your submission is reviewed.
Please take time to be detailed regarding the issue and your proposed idea or solution. Thank you so much for contributing!
