Abstract: Over the years, healthcare organisations have improved their processes, services, and outcomes significantly. However, with the increasing importance placed on value making, healthcare organisations too often are struggling to demonstrate best performance and/or appropriate and sustained quality of care. Hence, in this chapter we explore the benefits of using artificial neural network (ANN) techniques to identify lost value for the healthcare organisations and to facilitate Lean thinking adoption.
