Brilliant LEGO Visualization of Healthcare Flow (or Lack Thereof)

1

Thanks go to Hakan Forss, from Sweden, who sent me a link to an article he wrote about Lean, waste, and patient flow. He compares two healthcare systems – one where the focus is on keeping silo-ed resources busy (which leads to long patient delays) and one where the focus is primarily on patient flow through a value stream.

The piece also has some really cool visualizations done with LEGO blocks. Check it out!

    Thank you Mark. I’m glad you liked it.

    The story is my free translation and adaptation of a similar story in the great book “Vad är Lean” by Niklas Modig and Pär Ã…hlström

    I highly recommend this book too anyone who wants to learn more about Lean.The English version is due out soon.
