A New Model for Community Health Center (CHC) and Small Hospital Quality and Performance Transformation. This webinar will detail the thinking and tools within the Lean Sigma Health Care methodology that underlie its highly effective approach to driving meaningful and lasting organizational change. This session will present both clinic leadership and staff with ideas to immediately enhance their leadership effectiveness and ability to carry out their day-to-day functions. Most current approaches to rolling out Lean Six Sigma are tailored to large institutions and this presentation will detail a plan for small and rural hospitals that have proven both highly effective and revenue positive in a short time.
