Kevin, from BC, shared this video with me about Lean healthcare. It’s only 2.5 minutes long and it has a fun visual style.
I’ll give it +1 for focusing on improving being driven by the people who do the work. +1 for saying they don’t need a radical system overhaul, just lots of incremental improvements. My only constructive criticism is that the video seems to focus mainly on efficiency and not directly on quality and safety. Although efficiency can lead to better care, a form of quality, it’s unfortunate to leave the impression that efficiency is the sole focus. Still, it’s a fun short video.
From their site:
