Welcome to the Smart Lean Healthcare blog! I am glad you’re here! My name is James Hearn.
I have created this blog to provide information on lean application primarily within healthcare. You will find a blog (with blog posts I have written on various lean topics), a review of apps relevant to lean work in health care , a resource page (more to come here) and a section for guest posts from people influential in my health care journey (stay tuned).
Please look around at the information that is available and leave me a note in any of the comments sections about material you would like to see developed in the future.
Best Wishes to your continued success on your lean journey!
