Creative Healthcare – The Shortest Distance Between You and Improved


Creative Healthcare (CHC) has formed a relationship with the California Association of Healthcare Quality to create a broader distribution channel for the company's existing products, in particular the Lean for Healthcare online training program.

Such discounts should make the product affordable even for individuals that are unable to get tuition reimbursement assistance from their employer. Completion of these programs not only equips healthcare professionals to solve problems in their immediate environment; the acquired skills should also make them more attractive to future employers.
