To survive in today’s healthcare environment, organizations must deliver high quality patient care while reducing costs, improving quality and seeking out new sources of revenue. Derived from the Toyota Production System, Lean Healthcare provides tools that enable hospitals to focus on elimination of non-value added activities, thus achieving a balance between quality and finance.
