Achieving Flow

Do patients want to wait hours in an emergency room or physician office, or months for a scheduled medical procedure? No, of course not, ideally, they want to go from one process to the next – never having to wait. They need service to flow. When clients have to wait, the flow of the value stream has stopped.
