LEAN SIX SIGMA

Lean Six Sigma is the combination of two powerful resources to minimize waste and reduce medical errors in every process and procedure. Utilizing LEAN in the healthcare space allows us to minimize waste in every process, procedure and task through an ongoing system of improvement. Whereas, with Six Sigma it is usually used in tandem with LEAN to create improvements. Specifically, Six Sigma is a metrics-driven system used to reduce medical errors and remove defects from processes involved in delivering care. Think about this as being an opportunity to clean up all aspects of your business.
