Lean: A Prescription for Healthcare

Lean: A Prescription for Healthcare is a first in a series of videos aimed at helping healthcare organizations learn and adapt the lean management system. This introductory lean video was produced to help people new to lean learn some of the key concepts in both a fun and informative way. This is an excellent video for trainers and facilitators to “break the ice” and engage participants as well as for individuals and teams to use as a lean refresher. The video comes complete with a set of customizable “talking tools” and a workbook template for facilitation. Topics include: • A brief intro to lean and lean history • Process and systems thinking • Patient/Customer and Value Added / Non Value Added concepts • The “Eight Wastes” of Healthcare • Teams and Teamwork, culture • Real life stories and example from real providers
