Abstract: Lean Management within a Paramedic Service | 24 May 2017

What Will We Be Discussing?

Lean Management is an approach to running an organization that supports the concept of continuous improvement. The North American experience with Lean Management in healthcare appears to have begun in hospitals in the 1990s. Since then, well over 100 hospitals in the United States have been using the Lean Management System. Recently, Saskatchewan became the first jurisdiction in the world to apply Lean at a provincial scale across a variety of healthcare settings, including paramedic services.

As paramedic services in Canada begin their journey in Lean Management, much can be learned from paramedic services that have been on that journey considerably longer. This session will highlight the experiences of the Denver Health Paramedic Division. Denver Health first began to embrace its Lean principles in 2005.
