-- MINNEAPOLIS [Lean Healthcare Transformation Summit] (June 6, 2012) – Lean healthcare expert, Mark Graban, announced today he will be moderating a CEO panel on the second day of the 3rd annual Lean Healthcare Transformation Summit on June 7 at the Doubletree in Bloomington.
The CEO Panel gives attendees a chance to hear and ask questions with senior leaders who are directly engaged in improvement experiments within their organization's “lean transformation”
efforts, using proven management ideas that are adapted from “lean manufacturing”
and the automaker Toyota.
The 3rd Annual Lean Healthcare Transformation Summit teaches how innovative experiments are changing the delivery and cost for healthcare and how consumers and employers are driving a healthcare value focus by demanding transparency of cost and quality data across the system.
“I’m honored to take part in this event, it’s exciting to get the leaders of the healthcare industry together to exchange ideas on how to make sustainable improvements to hospitals and other healthcare organizations,”
