Lean Healthcare (adapted from the Toyota Production System) is not just for manufacturing or another short-term fix; it´s a way to transform an entire organization into a safe and high-quality, high-performing healthcare delivery system. If implemented properly, it can be the ´´how to´´ for managing change and creating continuous improvement. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark La Roi.
