What differentiates this book from other healthcare improvement books is that it is the only one currently available that presents a simple recipe of 38 lean steps for healthcare providers to reduce cost and improve quality. By taking these straightforward steps, healthcare providers can adopt the same lean methods which have enabled companies like Toyota to become so successful. The reader will learn to understand and implement a 38-step recipe to reduce healthcare costs and improve quality at healthcare providers by using Toyota Lean Production methods; understand cost and quality issues facing healthcare in the U.S.; and implement a permanent organizational structure to continuously improve quality and cost within a healthcare organization.Toyotaa#39;s Georgetown plan stopped building the Sienna minivan in December 2002 Sources: Harbour and Associates. ...
