Increase your practice's profitability while significantly decreasing patient wait times with the most complete process improvement program designed specifically for ophthalmology.

"After three months [using lean], we improved our patient satisfaction scores to 10 out of 10 [and] reduced average visit time for patients by 48 percent. The practice saw 23 percent growth." - Jose Agustin Martinez MD, Austin Retina Associates

You are challenged every day to do more with less. Lean practice management is a simple yet transformative methodology that enables you to not only meet the challenge, but to thrive.

Using "kaizen" (a cycle of continuous improvement defined as: Plan > Do > Check > Act), lean management creates the greatest value by empowering front-line staff, streamlining clinic flow and rigorously reducing patient wait times - all without additional staff or resources. 

The Lean Practice features:

  • clear instructions
  • case studies
  • downloadable worksheets and other tools

These tools will help you:

  • Observe and assess your practice process from the patient's perspective;
  • Employ continuous improvement in your practice;
  • Empower your staff to quickly try and implement solutions that eliminate delays and lost revenue;
  • Improve clinic flow and scheduling based on your practice data;
  • End work days on time and significantly reduce stress among physicians, staff and patients.

Walk step-by-step through three sections:

  • Section 1: Create and Empower the Front-Line Team
    • Gauge the current state of your practice and develop tools to increase revenue, practice efficiency and patient satisfaction

  • Section 2: Create the Lean Team Space
    • A deep dive into building a dedicated team around a physician, and the power of visual communication in the clinic

  • Section 3: The Integrated Lean Clinic
    • Implement transformational strategies to improve scheduling, streamline clinic flow and create more physician time for patients
