In the past 5 years, hospitals and health systems have been adopting Lean Management. Much attention has been given to the positive ﬁnancial impact realised – cost savings and capacity increases with no additional Cap Ex investment – it must also be emphasised that hospitals have positively deployed Lean to lower patient waiting times and to improve patient safety and the quality of care. An added bonus is that staff engagement levels greatly improves. Lean is fundamentally patient centric and tapping into the concealed potential of those closest to the patient – your frontline staff.
