Lean management system in healthcare

Improvements in quality and efficiency while controlling costs in healthcare are major strategic initiatives for many organizations. Many healthcare organizations are implementing a Lean Management System as the method to tackle these demands. When a Lean Management System is implemented properly, it will transform an organization’s culture. If the culture is focused on continuous improvement, sustainment is more likely to occur. In this project, I will define Lean, describe how a Lean Management System is used in healthcare, and consider its advantages for patients, staff, and physicians.
