Short post today as I am having Internet problems during a visit to learn about lean healthcare efforts in the Netherlands. More about that soon.

For now, check out the linked case study from a hospital lab published by the AHRQ. There are many nice case studies if you search the site.

    Mark, let me say you a warm a welcome in the Netherlands!

    That's a great pity I did not know about your visit beforehand.

    Would be really interested in reading your thoughts and conclusions after this visit!
