Why Choose Lean Healthcare Certificate? - Program Spotlight

As healthcare costs continue to skyrocket, health facilities are fraught with inconsistent and inefficient processes, while having no system for implementing solutions to deliver safe, cost-effective, quality care. Lean management is being recognized globally as a solution that affords clear guidelines for identifying these inefficiencies, while providing effective methods for developing effective, sustainable change solutions. Students who earn this certificate will be at a unique advantage and in high-demand in the field of healthcare administration, as the Joint Commission Center for Transformative Healthcare encourages use of Lean Six Sigma principles.  

Students completing this certificate are prepared to write the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt in Healthcare Certification exam.
