Lean Planning and Programming

Using Lean as a defined process improvement methodology, hospital planning and programming takes on a more rigorous, measurable and outcomes centered approach to planning. Building upon the traditional functional programming approach, clients’ processes are scrutinized through detailed analysis to identify opportunities for streamlined operational efficiencies that uncover existing process waste to ensure that inefficient process are not replicated in planning and programming, but instead new and improved systems are at the forefront. Using an evidence based approach to the planning process, and by thoroughly understanding the ins and outs of the current state operations, we push clients to think differently about how services can be delivered to realize greater efficiencies, and patient experience.
