Federal healthcare reform has been a major driver for the widespread shift towards high-quality, value-based care at healthcare organizations in the United States. With increased emphasis on quality and value in healthcare, process and performance improvement have been identified and capitalized upon as methods by which to achieve higher quality clinical outcomes, increase patient safety and satisfaction and improve care coordination. For past several decades, lean management and related doctrines and principles have been widely adopted among healthcare organizations in the United States for process and performance improvement purposes. This business plan proposes a lean management consulting firm for healthcare organizations of all sizes and delivery models in the Greater Los Angeles area with a mission to deliver state-of-the-art lean education and training to management and staff of all backgrounds and roles. The aim of the proposed firm is to train, develop and empower its clients to ensure continuous quality improvement and eventually become one of the biggest lean consulting players in the market.
