Here’s a nice interview with Kathryn Correia, CEO of HealthEast in Minnesota, a former ThedaCare executive: “Lean approach at HealthEast.”
From the piece:
Correia is a firm believer in “Lean Business,” a management framework popularized in the 1997 book by James Womack and Daniel Jones. The goal of the “lean” approach is to help companies create value and eliminate waste. It’s a process Correia is bringing full bore to HealthEast.
