In this presentation, Mark Graban of KaiNexus shares some examples of Lean improvements in healthcare organizations, along with insights into what the leaders in Lean healthcare are doing today.
It's well known that healthcare costs in the United States and around the world are increasing at an unsustainable rate. Unfortunately, these increased costs do not always lead to improvements in quality or patient care.
The use of Lean methods, for both process improvement and as a management philosophy, can result in simultaneous improvements in safety, quality, and wait times while reducing costs and engaging employees and physicians in a way that improves morale.
