“Whenever there is a product for a customer, there is a value stream. The challenge lies in seeing it.”

– Learning to See

value_stream_mappingThe Value Stream is all the actions (both value-added and non-value-added) currently required to bring a product to the customer.  Value Stream Mapping (VSM), therefore, is mapping all those processes so that the entire team or organization can visualize everything that happens in that process or in a particular patient’s journey.  A Value Stream Map allows you to identify every process in the flow, bring them to the forefront for everyone to see in order to create a Future State based on lean principles.

This course is a hands-on experience to enable healthcare providers and administrators to analyze their entire value streams through VSM.  It presents the concepts and methodologies and provides case studies and real-life applications showing how other healthcare organizations have used VSM to improve their processes and, in consequence, the care they deliver.

  • Identify Waste in Healthcare
  • Understand how value flows through the Value Stream
  • Create and use a Current State Value Stream Map
  • Create the Vision for improvement and communicate it visually with a Future State Map

Healthcare clinical and administrative leaders who want to understand how they deliver value to their patients and how to identify the waste in their current processes in order to eliminate as much of that waste as possible to enable their organizations to deliver higher-value care.
