Title: Lean Operations and Adaptive Facilities
Roger B. Call, AIA, ACHA, LEED AP, Director, Healthcare Architecture + Design Herman Miller Healthcare
This presentation reviews the connections between lean operations and adaptive spaces. While each could be a separate topic, the thesis is that they are inherently linked to one another and form a strong foundation for better health outcomes and reduced cost of care.
- Define some of the basic characteristics of lean operational techniques and how they relate to healthcare organizations.
- Review strategies for improving flexibility of healthcare facilities.
- Show how these two topics are interlinked and can support the goals of better care at affordable costs for a healthcare organization.
