HealthcareSource Acquires Lean Human CapitalToday, I have the pleasure of announcing some very exciting news: HealthcareSource has acquired Lean Human Capital.

Lean Human Capital is a company based out of Plymouth, Michigan that has become the leader in healthcare talent management process improvement, education, and business intelligence.

Based on discussions we’ve had with customers, we know the best way to improve the recruiting function is through a combination of both software technology and best practices. We’ve realized that it’s not enough to have a talent management solution that includes healthcare-specific software automation. We’ve learned that many of you have expressed an interest in access to healthcare-specific best practices, benchmarks, and advisory services.

With this acquisition, HealthcareSource will be able to satisfy this customer need more directly by providing insight into the best practices of leading healthcare providers, and access to industry experts who have more than 20 years of experience advising some of the most successful organizations in the world.

While this acquisition is immediately beneficial to our existing HealthcareSource software customers through more integrated advisory services, it also gives HealthcareSource executives and strategists access to the healthcare industry’s best benchmark data and process models. Over time, Lean Human Capital approaches will inform future product directions, strategic investments, and the introduction of new services.

HealthcareSource will run Lean Human Capital as a business unit called “Lean Human Capital by HealthcareSource.”

David Szary, the founder and principal thought leader behind Lean Human Capital, will be joining the HealthcareSource executive team, and the Lean Human Capital consulting group will remain intact. This team will continue to report to David Szary as a new advisory services group within HealthcareSource.

As we announced last year, HealthcareSource will continue to provide exclusive access to Lean Human Capital advisory services and the acclaimed Recruiter Academy.

For more information about this acquisition, please read the press release and the FAQ document on our website.

Please join me in welcoming Lean Human Capital employees and customers to the HealthcareSource family!
