The re-imagined 2021 Lean Healthcare Transformation Summit will focus on how you can become the change you want to see in your organization and the healthcare industry. While the global pandemic presented a myriad of challenges, the lean healthcare community met those obstacles by relying on the principles of organizational excellence and remaining focused on what matters most – patients, staff, and communities. Join fellow lean healthcare practitioners to learn, share, connect, and reflect as we create change together.

Join us June 23rd and 24th via our virtual attendee hub!
