Purpose of This Event
The primary purpose of the Lean Healthcare Academic Conference at Stanford is to provide an international forum for sharing contemporary examples of improvement from all types of health services in an academic format. As Lean Thinking is embraced around the world, in almost all sectors, we aim to improve our own understanding of how we improve together - crossing professional, organizational and geographic silos in the spirit of making things better for our patients.
More than half of the 2-day program will feature contributions from delegates through oral and poster presentations. Our 2019 conference is the fourth year for this event and each year we deepen and broaden our learning with the number of contributions from clinicians, leaders, allied health care personnel and improvement practitioners continuing to increase and diversify. The breadth of the program exemplifies the range of settings where Lean Thinking has been applied.
This year more than 80 abstracts were accepted into the conference through peer review. Consistent with our academic format, once again the conference program has been formed around your contributions. Year after year, we discover new insights, new examples and new adopters of Lean Thinking proving the value to our patients, our staff and our organizations.
