Lean Healthcare Certification

Course Overview

Lean is a system of improvement whose core idea is to create more value for customers while minimising waste in organisational processes. The term “lean” was derived to express the belief that organisations can do better if their processes are rid of non-value-adding waste or ‘fat.’ This system of improvement originated and was widely adopted in the manufacturing industry, and soon found its way across different sectors, which include healthcare.

The application of lean tools and methods in healthcare emerged as a means to remove wasted time in clinical processes and achieve better results with minimal resources involved. To achieve maximum return out of this system, however, there needs to be thorough understanding of its varied aspects combined with change in all levels of organisation. It is only by doing so that proper implementation of lean healthcare can be done and results like happier patients, more motivated front line staff, and increased bottom line can be achieved.
