LEAN Six Sigma is a performance improvement platform whose roots originate in the production and manufacturing industry. Its methodology builds upon a five-step process Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) with an intense focus on the removal of errors, defects, or “waste”, described as any step, motion or resource that does not add value to the process.
The rigorous application of LEAN Six Sigma principles in healthcare strategic planning, operations and change management results in higher reliability and improved consistency in care delivery, and in turn, improved patient safety and quality.
A3 differentiates itself from other firms in offering both the training and certification of healthcare professionals in the application of LEAN Six Sigma change management methods. Partners who invest in training and belt certification programs find greater return on the internal investments while leveraging A3’s coaching, strategic planning and operational support services.
