Improving Together for All – Patients, Families and Healthcare Workers

Lean Healthcare Academic Conference At Stanford 2022

Dates:  Tuesday October 11 and Wednesday October 12


Event Details:

After two years virtually, we are convening this year’s conference on the Stanford Campus where we will be able to meet, learn, share, and network face to face.

We have a lot to catch up on at our 7th Annual LHAC. Work practices have altered dramatically over the past two years and as we re-calibrate from the pandemic phase, adjusted ways of working are needed to improve the care, service delivery and outcomes for our patients and their families.  The healthcare workforce has been hit hard by the effects of COVID and we need to leverage our lean management system to connect, understand and work together with our teams to rebuild an improved healthcare community. Through our formal and informal conversations, we plan to broaden and deepen our understanding of improvement within the academic healthcare setting.

Our program relies on your submissions and we are delighted to have received an overwhelming number of abstract submissions this year from both experienced and new improvers along with many stories of improvement from leaders, clinicians and support services. We aspire to capture the depth and breadth of improvement across the academic healthcare setting so together we can build a stronger and more impactful community of practice and we look forward to sharing these stories with you again this year.

We continue to add to our outstanding group of invited speakers for this year’s event including the following:

Daniel J. Murphy, Jr. MD

Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology) Emeritus
Co-Chair, Department Well Being Directors Council, WellMD/PhD

Stanford University, School of Medicine

Marcia Nelson

Vice President – Chief Medical Officer, Enloe Medical Center



Add these important dates in your calendar and register before the early bird deadline to ensure your place at this years event!  Look out for program and speaker updates along with workshop and networking opportunities coming soon.

With warm regards
