Reader Question: Lean Healthcare Conferences I Like

It’s a double reader letter day… I was asked, by a healthcare professional, about where she could find Lean Healthcare conferences.

I’ll share my list and links below, both the events focused on Lean Healthcare as well as those with a strong Healthcare track (as part of a broader event). Some of the events may also feature Six Sigma content. What else would you add? Leave a comment…

Disclaimers: I may have spoken, for a fee or as a volunteer, for some of these events in the past. I was also formerly an employee of the Lean Enterprise Institute.

Healthcare Focus (Lean, Sometimes with Six Sigma)

    The IHI National Forum on Quality Improvement is outstanding. They do not dedicate a track to lean, however, overall the caliber of presentations is very high.
