Mark Graban Interviewed by


HTT_Red-websiteI was recently interviewed for the Healthcare Tech Talk podcast, talking about Lean healthcare, Kaizen, and how IT professionals can get involved in these pursuits within a hospital or health system. I appreciate them having me on their show.

My episode:

Episode 23- Healthcare technology professionals can stop asking. Yes Lean transformation includes you!

It's interesting that the podcast is framed for IT folks as saying Lean is usually seen as an approach “that only applies to clinicians in the clinical setting.” The clinical folks often say it only applies in administrative settings! Everybody likes to focus on how they're different, even though Lean principles and methods are so widely applicable.
