WEB SERIES – In Episode 2 of our docuseries on lean in Brazil, we learn how the pioneering efforts of a cancer clinic have inspired the city of São José dos Campos to transform into a lean healthcare cluster.


Scripted, edited and narrated by: Roberto Priolo


Join us as we visit two healthcare organizations in the city of São José dos Campos. Inspired by the lean work of Instituto de Oncologia do Vale (which we covered in Episode 1), the Hospital Municipal and the primary care unit Campos de São José have initiated their own transformations. You'll also learn about a successful city-wide initiative to improve access to cancer care for citizens. This is a story of Yokoten and how lean can spread across organizations.

Thank you to Lean Institute Brasil for facilitating these visits.
