A reminder about two upcoming events for the Lean Healthcare community:

MIT Professional Education – Short Programs: MIT will be holding three short courses on campus this July focused on various lean concepts geared towards busy professionals (Lean Academy ® Course, Lean Engineering Seminar, Lean Healthcare Academy). To learn more visit them on the web at http://shortprograms.mit.edu/lean. The Lean Healthcare Academy is July 16-18 and can be found at this link. I will be giving a talk on Saturday the 18th.

Lean Enterprise Academy Events; Lean Healthcare Transformation Summit 2009

I'm fortunate that I'll be attending this July 10th summit in London, run by Dan Jones and the UK-based Lean Enterprise Academy. If you're attending, be sure to let me know so we can meet up.

Presenters include John Toussaint, of ThedaCare, David Fillingham, CEO of the Bolton NHS Hospital, and a number of healthcare practitioners from the UK and their National Health Service.

    Almost $2400 for three day course? That's $100 per classroom hour. Doesn't seem very lean to me. Yeah, I know that is the going rate.

    Travel costs could easily be an addition $1500.

    Why can't someone provide a more efficient alternative than spending $4000 to learn about lean healthcare?
