Lean in Healthcare

Primary tabs



LEAN is a methodology meant to improve the performance of any process. It is a way to eliminate waste and improve quality, allowing for a positive shift in organizational culture. LEAN has been embraced by the healthcare industry with success in the past. However, as populations’ age and immigration fuels growth, refreshing and repeating the methods in LEAN training can implement improvements to modern challenges.

How to Identify When to Go LEAN

ACE is an acronym for Acknowledge-Collaborate-Execute. Certified LEAN Belts will spend time at your location, observing the people and processes in order to identify your LEAN maturity level and note potential areas for improvements.

Master Black Belts in LEAN will then create a customized, modern Good/Better/Best analysis of
the opportunities for training available to your organization. This diagnostic tool is provided as a courtesy before any investment in training is required.
