White Belt Certification
Canada Health Net welcomes you to experience LEAN in Healthcare and no previous experience with LEAN is required.
Canadian healthcare organizations are increasingly asked to do more with less, and too often this has resulted in demands on staff to simply work harder and longer. Lean methodologies, originating from Japanese industrial organizations and most notably Toyota, offer an alternative – tried and tested approaches to working smarter. Lean, with its systematic approaches to reducing waste, has found its way to Canadian healthcare organizations, with promising results.

WHAT IS LEAN?
Healthcare Operations can be greatly improved by utilizing LEAN practices to free up resources and be able to do more with less.
WHY LEAN IN HEALTHCARE?
Healthcare is one of the fastest growing sectors with increasing demand for services due to increased prevalence of chronic conditions and growing number of seniors and baby boomers.
In accordance to Health Canada statistics, chronic disease rates increase at 14% every year. By 2036, Canadian population over 65 will increase to almost 25%, or 10 million people as people live longer. Treatment of chronic disease consumes 67% of all direct healthcare costs, healthcare expenditures are rising faster than national GDP.
The demand for improving healthcare quality and efficiency while controlling costs has never been more urgent to be able to sustain healthcare delivery and patient care at its best.

LEAN has never been more valuable than now in Medical Practice Management. Physicians are faced with lower fees to sustain and run their operations. This has a direct impact on quality of health care delivery and the ability to maintain well run and properly resourced medical practice.
The healthcare organizations that have implemented lean principles reported positive impact on:
- Productivity (Reduced workload and increased capacity to be able to see more patients)
- Cost (More Value for Money: Reduced resources utilization and increased capacity)
- Quality (Streamlined and standardized approach to workflows and administration)
- Timely Delivery of Services (Reduced Wait Time for Patients)
- Safety (Reduced safety incidents)
