As the Lean Enterprise Institute abbreviates the categories of the lean method for quality improvement, lean consists of 3 major components: Process, People, and Purpose. These components delineate further into value, capability, availability, adequacy, and flexibility in the flow of claims production from the provision of services. 

RCM consists of scheduling, arrivals, front desk operations, billing & coding, claims processing, claims transmission, collections, and account reconciliation.

Through a case study(s) example, the webinar correlates the lean process through the revenue cycle to dispel misleading and narrow assumptions of revenue shortfalls (our contracts do not provide enough reimbursement) to the subset of issues that lead to root cause analysis and actions to monitor the progress of solving the subset of problems.
