With today’s economic challenges and requirements for safety, it is even more critical for hospitals to leverage cost savings as well as determine ways to improve patient safety. While there are many schools of thought, a number of hospitals are looking to the Lean methodologies originally introduced by Toyota for ideas about improving safety and decreasing waste in healthcare. Lean facilitates improvements through observation and critical thinking in any department of the hospital.
Whether you want to improve patient/staff satisfaction, patient wait times, reduce inventory, or improve productivity, there are Lean tools that can assist you. Through the Stanley InnerSpace website, we will introduce you to Lean in healthcare and the tools which make achieving your goals possible.
