Lean Implementation Designed for Healthcare
Welcome to Lean Healthcare West! We believe that Lean should be easy to learn and simple to implement across any organization. The goal of Lean is to recognize the tremendous experience stored in front line workers and to give them the problem solving skills to remove any barriers preventing them from delivering exceptional care. The reVIEW© Program was created by healthcare professionals to turn staff into continuous improvement champions.
Our unique implementation of foundational Lean thinking and practice has been successfully applied in more than 115 acute and long term care facilities, physician professional practices and throughout the healthcare supply chain. The concepts and methods are easy-to-learn and easy-to-teach which creates the ability to develop internal capacity for sustaining the practice of Lean without exhaustive consulting reliance.
