Lean management, a quality improvement methodology many hospitals are adopting, draws from the well-known Toyota Production System pioneered in Japan. Lean fosters a way of thinking, operating, and managing that focuses on creating value for customers, weeding out waste, and pursuing continuous improvement. More hospitals are embracing Lean as they seek to boost their performance to meet the challenges of tighter reimbursement and the constant need to improve the quality of care and the patient experience.
Lean requires a major commitment. The effort can't be isolated to a single project or a single department. Senior leaders must take the lead, become educated, and provide resources to support a Lean culture. In this special report, which compiles articles from OR Manager, perioperative teams share how they've used Lean to improve their services.
