Lean-Flow Program for Health Care

Based on the key concepts of multiple Process Management Systems, Lean-Flow health care shows how to fundamentally restructure organizations and effectively balance costs, quality, and patient access to excellent care. Lean-Flow focuses on eliminating wasteful activities that contribute to cost but provide no real value to the patient, and also simplifies complex processes. Instead of traditional cost-cutting strategies which target reductions in value-added areas (people, equipment, hospital beds, services, etc.) Because non-value added activities comprise 99% of health care costs, opportunities are everywhere.
