In 2010 the Lean Enterprise Institute and ThedaCare Health Systems joined to form the Healthcare Value Leadership Network. An organization designed to help hospitals and healthcare organizations with their lean journeys, by eliminating waste, increasing safety, and improving communication.
The Healthcare Value Leaders, now known as The ThedaCare Center for Healthcare Value unites healthcare leaders who share a commitment to providing high-quality, cost-effective care through the application of lean concepts.
Each year LEI and The ThedaCare Center for Healthcare Value conduct the Lean Healthcare Transformation Summit, where lean thought leaders (in and out of the healthcare field) from all over the globe share the challenges they have faced, what they have learned, and what they like to learn from others.
