Overview

Demonstrating that big results are possible in just a short time, Kaiser Permanente Colorado’s Medicaid Enrollment Project Team used Lean Six Sigma methodology to evaluate and improve the organization’s Medicaid enrollment processes.

A variety of quality tools, including an innovative application of the 5S tool, were utilized to develop a new enrollment template.

The three-month project resulted in a 45 percent gain in Medicaid membership while increasing Medicaid revenue by more than $1 million annually and decreasing cycle time for member enrollment from 62 days to 11 days.

With benefits reaching the $1 million mark, the one-year return on investment was an impressive 21:1.
