What is Lean Six Sigma?
It combines several methodologies:
- Six Sigma is an enterprise-wide, project-driven quality improvement approach that emphasizes a systematic approach to problem solving and making decisions based on data. Six Sigma results in increased customer satisfaction, improved quality and reduced costs.
- DMAIC is a five-step methodology used for projects aimed at improving an existing business process.
- Lean is a method that concentrates on reducing waste by improving work flow and eliminating mistakes.
Together, these methodologies provide healthcare organizations a powerful means to reduce waste, improve customer service, and reduce costs.
