The Lean Sigma Prescription for Healthcare® Green Belt Certificate Course is customized specifically for health care professionals. This approach combines Lean Methodology, which focuses on optimizing flow, increasing speed and reducing waste, with Six Sigma statistical tools to identify root causes and reduce defects. Targeting the seven wastes of health care (defects or rework, overproduction, excess motion, over-processing, wait time, excess inventory and transportation), this Lean Sigma combination provides powerful improvement tools to address the many chronic operational problems seen in health care. Case studies, exercises and examples will include application of Lean Sigma tools to improve on-time starts in the operating room, to reduce hospital-acquired infections, to improve patient throughput in the emergency department, to reduce length of stay and to improve patient discharge times. The complete Lean Sigma activity is conducted over a one-week session. Participants are expected to bring a laptop for use in class, complete the pre-activity reading assignments, and complete a Lean Sigma project at their own organization. Course Objectives Apply Lean and Six Sigma tools to health care through examples, exercises and projects. Following this activity, the participant will be able to:
