Lean Healthcare

Lean principles are based on the Toyota Production System and include:

    • Increase value from the customer’s perspective
    • Eliminate waste from work processes
    • Foster a culture of continuous improvement
    • Engage employees at all levels in making improvements

Lean thinking and principles have been changing the way healthcare operates over the last decade and a half. Many hospitals both nationwide and in our region are applying these principles to reduce waste and deliver better patient care. In addition to this, we are also doing a lot of work with individual physician offices to improve their workflows and patient care.

We can assist you in your lean journey through a variety of services including introductory overview training that utilizes an emergency room simulation, on site facilitated lean improvement projects, on site training around specific lean tools, and our six-month long Lean Office Champion training.
