With the advancement of healthcare, certain issues that lead to wastage had been addressed with the creation of the concepts of the Lean Hospital, Lean Healthcare, and other facilities that cater to the concept of "Lean", which in turn improves profit, patient care, and other metrics. This Lean concept entails tremendous improvements in healthcare quality and safety, job balancing, and its overall cost. In these days, the patients are willing to part with their money to receive the valuable healthcare service they deserve--which is diagnosis, treatment, and eventual discharge, but other than that, they won't, and this causes waste.
Hospitals and healthcare facilities implementing the Lean concepts tend to have more efficient and productive services, which both satisfies the employees and the patients, and are effective in identifying the sources of waste. This knowledge alone will help these Hospitals establish a sustainable system that would in turn produce a healthcare system that would cater to problems comprehensively and effectively.
