It is not a secret that the healthcare system is broken. Costs continue to rise at an unsustainable pace and patients continue to find harm when they were looking for healing.

Healthcare organizations face the political and socioeconomical pressures of legislation, reduced reimbursements, an aging population, rising costs, among others. In order to rise to the challenge, healthcare organizations need to not only master the skills of healthcare delivery, but to ensure they do so safely and affordably. The Lean methodology has been applied throughout a wide range of industries producing remarkable results. Organizations who embrace these philosophies have shown dramatic improvements in quality, safety and, as a direct result, cost reductions.

The objective of this course is to enable healthcare leaders to harness the power of these methods to improve their organizations so they can deliver the care their patients need and the profitability their stakeholders demand.
