Lean Healthcare Academy
The Lean Healthcare Academy is a partnership between Virtual College and wdid that combines face-to-face training with high quality e-learning to help healthcare organisations develop lean processes and improve their service delivery skills.
Why choose lean training?
Today’s difficult economic times have led many healthcare organisations to take a closer look at their processes in order to reduce inefficiencies and make budgets go further.
Lean training gives healthcare organisations and their staff a framework to take on this challenge, improve the way that they work and ease some of the pressure that comes with delivering a high quality, patient-centred service.
The lean training available includes:
How the Lean Healthcare Academy helps
The Lean Healthcare Academy uses blended learning (a combination of face-to-face training and coaching supported by high quality e-learning courses) to help healthcare organisations become their own experts. This means that healthcare organisations can deliver their own improvements, without those improvements having to be done to them.
All of the Lean Healthcare Academy training programmes are bespoke and tailored to the healthcare organisation’s specific audience, needs and aims. Typically these training programmes feature some, or all, of the following elements:
- Expert reframing and scoping
- Briefing of the staff involved
- Expert master classes in improvement techniques
- E-learning support
- Project scoping support
- Project coaching
- Project and delegate accreditation
