Lean Lean – Practical and Results Driven
Lean, an increasingly popular performance improvement system in healthcare, is often thought of as complicated and focused on large changes or a complete system overhaul. But there is a lot you can do with a few simple techniques derived from Lean. Our speaker, Dr. Jennifer Childs-Roshak, will share her experiences in deploying Lean techniques throughout a large group practice where she served as site medical director. This presentation highlights lessons learned from the front line with a practical results driven approach. Dr. Childs-Roshak, is the CEO of Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts(PPLM) and President of Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts.

She also served as the site medical director of the Kenmore Atrius practice where she was also a primary care physician. Jennifer’s interest in performance improvement began early in her career as a family physician when she began studying the methodology used by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. Dr. Childs-Roshak received her medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, completed her internship and residency at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine and is board certified in family medicine.
