A Lean Toolbox - Using Lean Principles and Techniques in Healthcare

Lower Overall Costs

  • Savings of 25% or more over in-house training plus the added benefit of focusing education staff resources on internal initiatives
  • Minimize litigation risk by outsourcing training and document retention to Cascade
  • Repurposed human and physical assets allow Education Departments to focus on mission critical initiatives that impact the quality of patient care

Improved Quality

  • Training incorporates a national perspective and industry best practices tailored to individual hospital needs
  • Training rooted in the latest evidence-based practice and real world application
  • Instruction delivered by passionate instructors in an engaging polished style ensuring students retain information and leave prepared, confident and ready to perform in the field

Refocus Resources

  • Setup, takedown, equipment maintenance, space limitations, materials and customer support is all provided by Cascade
  • Abundant course offerings combined with online, phone and email customer support means fewer no-shows, expired credentials, backfilled shifts, overtime or reimbursements
  • Accounts payable integration is simple and efficient
  • Accountability for maintaining right-to-work credentials is shifted to employee and easily verified by manager

Guaranteed Compliance

  • All training delivered to accredited standards, regardless of location
  • Credential documentation is retained and accessible 24x7 for audits


  • Inefficient use of facility staff to administer in-house programs
  • Course scheduling logistics for instructors and students
  • Skipped classes (causing over-staffed class instructors)
  • Overtime pay for classes taken after a 40 hour work week
  • Reimbursements for classes taken outside of hospital
  • Backfilling shifts for training or expired certifications
  • Providing adequate customer service by hospital staff
  • Insufficient class offerings to ensure certifications don't lapse
  • Trainer turnover
  • Inconsistent Instructor quality across hospital facilities
  • Lack of or availability of adequate space
