Lean Healthcare Professional Course Overview

Lean Healthcare Professional training is 100% online, self-paced, mobile friendly and hosted on a learning management platform. There are no required software applications or additional training materials needed.


This course is a response to the unrelenting pressure in healthcare to do more, do it more efficiently, and to do it with fewer resources. However, it is not a course in simply improving efficiency and lowering costs. Rather it is a course that focuses on delivering better patient outcomes within the context of available resources. And in most situations, by following the principles of Lean, it is very possible to improve those outcomes while at the same time improving efficiency.

Topics include creating a lean culture, understanding process flow, improving process flow, building flow charts, reducing waste, eliminating delays and errors, managing process flow using Kanban, monitoring lean processes, following the principles of lean leadership, and initiating a program of continuous improvement.

It is a course anchored to the literature in Lean but with a specific focus on how Lean can be applied to healthcare. All of the content including the examples in each chapter address common healthcare issues, and, in addition, you will find many case studies that illustrate how healthcare institutions have used the concepts covered here to improve their performance.

Course Topics: Creating a Lean Culture, Managing Healthcare, Process Flow, Kanban, Eliminating Waste, Lean Leadership, Continuous Improvement, Lean Product Development, Charting and More.

What is a Certified Lean Healthcare Professional (CLHP)?

A Certified Lean Healthcare Professional is a leader or individual contributor who has a full understanding of Lean methods and tools, is able to use Lean principals to solve critical problems and has a strong focus on continuous improvement.  Within a healthcare organization, the CLHP is seen as a specialist, coach and leader when it comes to anything Lean and continuous improvement.

How is the Certified Lean Healthcare Professional (CLHP) course different from a Lean Six Sigma Healthcare Course?

While both the Lean Healthcare course and Lean Six Sigma Healthcare courses provided by SSGI share similar characteristics, with slight overlap, the Lean Healthcare course focuses strictly on continuous improvement and the concepts of Lean. The SSGI Lean Healthcare Certification can be a great addition for any professional working in a healthcare organization who is seeking to broaden their leadership and management possibilities.
