About the health care version of the AME Lean Sensei® Excel tool

In partnership with a team of health care professionals, AME created a tool that will help health care organizations self-assess their current process improvement strategy, learn where they stand, identify the gaps and plan for the future. Get the new health care version of the AME Lean Sensei® Excel Tool for free today!

"For me, it was important to do this because health care is progressing fast in process improvement and there wasn’t anything like the AME Lean Sensei for health care professionals to use. Lean and process improvement started in manufacturing, and most tools are manufacturing specific, but there is nothing that prevents us from using these tools and making them more relevant to health care. I am very excited to use it as an operations improvement strategic planning tool at Meritus Health."

— Sara Abshari, manager of operations improvement for Meritus Health, AME Lean Sensei® health care team
