What is Lean Six Sigma?

Lean Six Sigma is a blend of two concepts: Lean, which is aimed at reducing waste by breaking down processes and segregating waste from value, and Six Sigma, which helps companies reduce process variation and errors by applying quality and statistical tools. Together they help companies reap the benefits of faster processes with lower cost and higher quality.

Lean Six Sigma was originally developed to improve manufacturing efficiency and quality. Now all types of industries, including healthcare, are adopting Lean Six Sigma to get measurable positive results.

The benefits of Lean Six Sigma for healthcare organizations include:

Increased patient satisfaction and care

  • Decreased medical and prescription errors
