Notes
Every healthcare organization can learn from Seattle Children's [Hospital] continuous improvement process, but this book is not an operator's manual. Instead, it is a challenge to everyone concerned with healthcare to reexamine deeply held assumptions. While it is commonly believed that improved quality, access, and safety, and an improved bottom line are mutually exclusive, Seattle Children's demonstrates that it is quite possible to realize all these improvements concurrently. Written by remarkable change agents from the front lines at Seattle Children's and other forward-thinking organizations, this bok discusses ways to transform key personnel into change agents and engage all staff in a patient-focused culture dedicated to eliminating waste and improving all aspects of quality and care.

"In November 2010, Leadership Council decided to support the use of Lean within the health authorities as a process redesign tool. One of the strategic actions or Key Result Areas (KRAs) for achieving the Ministry of Health's Innovation and Change Agenda is concerned with reducing waste and increasing value in the health care sector using Lean methods. A key deliverable for this KRA is an annual report for Leadership Council that outlines how Lean has been used in the provice. This report presents seven case studies that have been identified by the health authorities as compelling and successful Lean initiatives."--preface.
