Essential Lean Six Sigma for Healthcare

Essential Lean Six Sigma for Healthcare

There is simply no better way to improve patient, staff, and provider satisfaction; quality; and profitability than Lean Six Sigma (LSS).  The top healthcare organizations have adopted it full force and are more profitable and have the highest patient satisfaction scores.

The epic fail of most LSS courses and training programs is that they front-load an immense amount of training without teaching the vital few tools and skills necessary to run successful projects.  Curricula are often ported directly from books designed for manufacturing and participants are overloaded with information they will never need in healthcare.

SigmaMed’s Lean Six Sigma for Healthcare course is different.  We have developed our course specifically for healthcare professionals and included examples from our healthcare project experience to give you shortcuts and ensure you are quickly able to make a difference in your organization.

Most of our training is through learning-by-doing and the result is highly relevant and interesting training that cuts to the core of what is needed to implement effective change in your healthcare organizations.
