Our Vision & Mission

What is lean?

At CLEAR, We have implemented a working definition of lean to aid us in ensuring that we are able to accurately identify and critically evaluate Lean process improvement initiatives. We define lean as

The development of a culture that enables an overall management system to create value for customers by eliminating waste and solves problems through the daily application of the scientific method in creating standard work. The end result is improved quality and lower cost for the patient (increased value).

Our Vision

The vision of CLEAR is to transform healthcare delivery by  providing the knowledge to help organizations  eliminate waste and  create greater value resulting in the continuous improvement of patients’ outcomes and experience of care, population health, and reduced growth in the cost of care.

Our Mission

CLEAR’s mission is to conduct timely, relevant, and actionable research on lean whole system transformation initiatives in healthcare.
