About this title:


NEW 2nd Edition of the Black and White workbook!

There has never been a more exciting-- or perilous-- time for Aging Services. With changing payment models on the horizon, government regulations always in flux, and consumer expectations constantly growing, Aging Services organizations must constantly evolve and improve in order to survive. Lean for Long-Term Care and Aging Services is an invaluable guide for nursing homes, assisted living communities, senior housing, home care, and any other organization focused on providing care and services to older adults or those with disabilities.

Lean is based on the popular Toyota Production System, and is quickly becoming the standard methodology for improvement in healthcare. By focusing on customer needs and continuously improving performance while reducing waste, Lean can offer breakthrough results to your organization.

As both a primer and workbook, Lean for Long-Term Care and Aging Services offers an overview of Lean philosophy and methodology, along with a variety of ready-to-use tools, guides and assessments to jumpstart your quality improvement program, reduce waste in your organization, and enable you to better serve your residents or clients. Learn how to set your organization apart with innovative management practices and a relentless pursuit of doing good work better.

From the Inside Flap: This is an exciting and challenging time for aging services. Health systems and payers are changing reimbursement models, consumers are demanding better communities and outcomes, and federal regulators continue to increase quality assurance and improvement requirements. In a nutshell, providers must adapt continuously to provide better, more efficient services or risk being left with an empty building.

Lean is a comprehensive quality improvement strategy, forged from lessons learned across industries, countries, and workplaces. It serves as a cultural anchor, a philosophy of change and a foundation to improve the way you serve residents.

Lean also sounds like something that couldn't possibly be of value in aging services. The most common response I hear from providers is, "We're already lean! There's nothing else to cut around here!" It's an understandable reaction in a segment of healthcare that has been deprived of needed resources for decades, while simultaneously being criticized by the media and regulators for not doing enough to care for the persons served. Lean is not, however, about cutting jobs, doing more with less, or trying to squeeze blood from a turnip. Instead, Lean is about doing more of what's important and less of what's not; about doing more that is valuable and less that is wasteful.

Lean, as it pertains to aging services, is about creating the best possible value for residents. So, what is value? Essentially, whatever a resident wants and is willing to pay for. In a skilled setting, this means high-quality rehabilitation services, a comfortable environment, and excellent care. In assisted living, this might mean independence and dignity, enabled with support as needed.
