The Altru Way

How does an organization achieve world-class care? At Altru, we adopted a model that encompasses three core elements to help us achieve this vision: evidenced-based leadership, lean management and high reliability.  We call this The Altru Way. 

  1. Evidenced-based leadership includes implementing best practices for leading a complex health system and focuses specifically on alignment, action and accountability for everyone on the team.
  2. Lean management involves applying the scientific method to improve processes in everyday work. We involve those closest to the work to trial improvement ideas. The goal of lean is to reduce waste and increase value for patients and their family members.
  3. High reliability means we implement the most reliable processes to achieve the highest standards, gather feedback on how we doing, and continually learning from results so that we prevent errors in the future.

These three elements work together: leaders align and support continuous improvement to realize greater reliability and better outcomes. Our physicians are critical to leading, applying the improvement methods, and learning with the teams.
