Stacey Dodge, Director of Design and Implementation at Ronco Specialized Systems has earned her Lean Certificate in Healthcare!  What is Lean Healthcare? The Lean Management principles that have been used extensively and effectively in manufacturing for decades, with their roots following the Japanese manufacturing process, have value in and are being successfully delivered throughout healthcare. It is more than an initiative or program, it is a way of thinking and doing business that infuses the workforce.

While healthcare and manufacturing differ in many ways, there are also surprising similarities; whether the entity is building a car or providing healthcare for a patient, the skilled worker must rely on multiple, complex processes to accomplish their goal and provide value to the customer or patient. The Lean process helps to better value manage money, time, supplies or patient good will.

Having an understanding of the foundations of the Lean principles will help us to understand any facility that has adopted the Lean business methodology and is using it as their backbone of operation. It will also help with the facility that hasn't yet adopted the Lean theology, by allowing us to identify the key indicators and goals of every healthcare facility; safety, quality, timeliness, financial stewardship and personal development.

We are so proud of Stacey for achieving this accreditation and bringing these methodologies to our team!
