Lean Process

For nearly 20 years, FreemanWhite has incorporated Lean analysis into our design planning. Using both low-tech “boots on the ground” methods such as observation of existing operations and time and motion studies of staff work, as well as high-tech tools including dashboard scenario planning and computer simulation modeling, our Lean analysts help designers rapidly quantify processes and evaluate potential design solutions, helping to maximize efficiencies and remove unnecessary operational and facility waste. With the idea that happy staff create satisfied patients, our process meaningfully engages clinical staff throughout planning and design and rapidly facilitates decision making based upon operational and physical best practices to promote solutions that allow for quicker market penetration. Our team utilizes a variety of Lean analysis tools to deliver successful solutions.
