Introduction to Lean in Healthcare

Are you frustrated by poor communication and waste in healthcare related processes? An introduction to Lean thinking may be just what your team needs.  Lean has recently transformed the way many hospitals and health systems operate, leading our team to create an introductory training with examples and exercises drawn from our Lean experiences in healthcare. Lean thinking refers to a philosophy and management strategy focused on customer value and respect for people.

This workshop provides those who lead hospitals, health centers, practices, and related service industries with an introduction to Lean thinking and continuous improvement tools for healthcare. The first half of the day will cover the principles of Lean thinking and provide several exercises so participants can compare traditional processes to Lean processes. The second half of the day will share an overview of some of the important Lean tools and challenge the class to identify applications for Lean in their organization.

The instructors have over 30 years combined experience in leading organizational transformation and have many engaging exercises and examples to share from their experiences implementing Lean improvements at hospitals and other healthcare practices.
