By now, most people in healthcare are familiar with the phrase “The Triple Aim”: Better health for the population; better care for the individual; and lower costs through improvement. Sounds great, but how do we achieve it?  Implementing a Culture of Lean is an excellent way to achieve The Triple Aim.  Having a culture that cultivates and embraces lean thinkers will drive your organization to success.  Join us for this webinar to learn how to create a Lean Culture in your organization

Upon completion of the webinar, the participant will learn how to look at processes from their patients’ view point and understand:

1.  The background and history of lean
2.  The concept of frontline work
3.  The role of managers and executives in developing lean thinkers

Interesting fact:
In a Lean Culture, staff members on the front lines are provided tools to make improvements in their work.  All processes are mapped using a patient centered approach.
