Under the direction of Stephen M. Shortell, PhD. and dean emeritus, the goal of CLEAR is to help achieve the triple aim of better healthcare quality and patient experience, improved population health and reduced growth of healthcare costs.</p> <p>In its first major initiative, CLEAR has established a Lean Action Research Learning Collaborative. This group will consist of 10 selected hospitals/integrated healthcare systems that view lean and related transformational improvement approaches as an overall management operating system to improve the value of care to patients as part of a five-year study.
