Register Now: Oct. 28 Webinar on “Lean” Redesigns of Primary Care Workflows

Registration is open for a webinar on Oct. 28, from noon to 1 p.m. EDT, on research findings on the results of implementing “Lean” redesigns of primary care workflows in a large ambulatory care system. Lean is an organizational redesign approach derived from the automotive industry that is increasingly used in health care. It focuses on eliminating all types of waste and standardizing care. AHRQ’s webinar will highlight redesigns that occurred across 17 clinics. Strategies included standardizing medical equipment and supplies, revamping call center operations, creation of small teams with new workflows and co-locating physicians and medical assistants in shared workspaces. The webinar will examine conditions affecting the implementation and its outcomes.
