This most recent interview was live streamed as well as taped via Mr. Graban's YouTube channel. Dr. Mandel and Mr. Graban discussed the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on hospitals and how healthcare organizations can use Lean concepts and tools to return to "normal" operations as the spread of COVID-19 first eases then persists at some level. They also discussed how hospitals will continue to be challenged by limited resources, financial losses, overworked staff and the need to maintain non-COVID related services. Dr. Mandel presented examples of how different healthcare teams have utilized Lean principles as they problem solved to meet the demands of the pandemic. They also highlighted ways in which healthcare organizations can utilize Lean tools and methodologies to align medical staff, stay responsive to changes in the environment and meet the goals of quality patient care.
