This lean healthcare training kit is for any type or size hospital. It teaches lean from patients being admitted, through their length of stay and discharge. Launched in Feb 2012 at the SHS (Society for Health Systems) conference, this kit will transform 8 – 14 people through a 2 to 8 hour program.
Using kaizen techniques, help fix wastes in the admission process, handoff’s between pharmacy, lab and other inpatient services then solve discharge planning and execution. As a bonus, link this kit to Lean E.D.TM to improve E.D. to inpatient issues!
