Lean Works in Every Discipline

Lean systems improve profitability by eliminating waste, maximizing flow, reducing error, and building a culture of continuous improvement in organizations. Manufacturing companies have used Lean systems for several decades, and now healthcare systems throughout the US using the very same Lean systems that manufacturers have relied on to improve efficiency and increase profits.

Lean Healthcare is the application of lean principles to all aspects of healthcare including hospitals, clinics, labs, doctors’ offices, government facilities, dentists’ offices, and preventive health services.
