Healthcare – “Writing The New Playbook For U.S. Health Care: Lessons From Wisconsin”

John Toussaint just had a piece published in the influential peer-reviewed journal “Health Affairs.” You normally have to pay for the article, but the Lean Enterprise Institute has arranged a link for free viewing if you go via our side.

So click on the link above and then find the “Click to read more” link at the bottom. I can't link directly to the article from here or it won't work. Probably not lean, but not our rules.

John's piece is a nice intro and summary into the lean work at ThedaCare and also touches on public policy aspects that touch lean.
