Denver Health Lean Academy

The Denver Health Lean Academy will kick start your organization’s Lean journey by teaching the value of the Lean methodology and practices in the healthcare setting and providing hands-on experience. Now in collaboration with Healthcare Performance Partners, we are taking the Lean Academy to a whole new level. We’re redesigning our existing courses to reflect Denver Health’s progress on its never-ending Lean journey as well as launching new ones. Now you will be able to not only see, but understand the systems within and the successes achieved by Denver Health. Together we can change the healthcare industry, making it safer and more efficient for patients.
