Lean Six Sigma for Hospitals Certification

Course Overview

As with most companies providing services to people, hospitals encounter a host of problems in their processes, practices, people, and delivery of services. While many of these are simple in nature, some are serious enough to cause consequences that are not just expensive but fatal as well. These serious issues include, but are not limited to, improper patient flow, dangerous delays, operational errors, clinical mistakes, costly healthcare services, and poor management. Fortunately, all these problems can be resolved through the adoption, proper implementation, and sustenance of Lean Six Sigma methods and practices.

Lean Six Sigma is a method of improvement that relies on team effort to systematically remove “waste” or unnecessary activities that hinder the efficiency and effectiveness of an enterprise’s operational processes. Hospitals that have adopted the key tools, tenets and strategies of Lean Six Sigma have reported dramatic improvements in their service delivery, patient satisfaction, and employee engagement. They have also seen significant reduction in medical mistakes and operational errors.
