Purdue Healthcare Advisors extends lean training to a nationwide market with the launch of its first online, lean process improvement course

Monday, November 12 2018 - West Lafayette,

Purdue Healthcare Advisors (PHA) will use PHA Direct, the e-learning platform it launched earlier this year, to expand access for the training and certification of Lean Daily Improvement Facilitators. 

“Today’s technology allows us to share across the country what Purdue University experts have learned through a decade of coaching and training health care workers, many who have limited resources to make the changes necessary to support high-quality care and meet the requirements of state and federal compliance programs,” said PHA Director Randy Hountz, MSM. “In hundreds of cases, we’ve proved that Lean Daily Improvement (LDI) can reduce costs and increase revenue for clinics and hospitals as well as improve quality measures, clinical outcomes, and patient satisfaction.”

Now clinicians, administrators and practice managers, and others working in health care ― regardless of their location  can study to become a certified LDI facilitator. The course is part of Lean Immersion, a new, online training, coaching, and community-building program offered by PHA and the Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering at Purdue. Lean Immersion serves to address barriers to performance improvement specific to health care, such as complex processes, subtle people-to-people interactions, and behavior-change challenges. Course registration is open and ongoing. (read more on this story at the Purdue News Service)
