Residents learn Lean, too

Part of BIDMC SPIRIT is to infuse many of the LEAN process improvement principles throughout the hospital. A key constituency in this effort are the residents who, after all, spend as much time on the patient care floors as anybody. So, we have begun a training program for this group, and the first sessions were held this week.

Shown here is Alice Lee, our LEAN guru, er, sensei, conducting a class. Also, you see a couple of the students on the floors, quietly observing things and learning how to look for waste and opportunities for efficiency improvements.
