2nd Annual Lean in Healthcare

September 21, 2009 - September 22, 2009

Interest in the application of lean principles to healthcare service delivery is continuing to gain momentum as increasing numbers of hospitals and other health service providers see positive results once they adopt this methodology. Although ideally implemented in a ‘top down’ fashion to an entire organization at once, most of those who have tried it have done so in a ‘staged’ approach, beginning with the ED or the lab, almost as an experiment using very few resources. Despite the limited application, organizations are amazed at the transformative results obtained. Lean is often described as ‘common sense’ – which is obviously not so common or many of the methods involved would have already been employed, and wait times for some medical services would not be as long.
