Hospital Capacity Management Solutions
A solution suite for providers that want to precisely predict patient demand, align resources, schedule staff, and accelerate patient flow.
The inability to accurately predict patient demand results in a heavy dependence on agency staff, suboptimal overtime usage, and cost variability.
Our capacity management solutions help providers more precisely predict patient demand and align that demand with the right staff skills at the right time.
The result is reduced reliance on agency staff, optimized overtime usage, and decreased staffing cost variability.
Without the ability to monitor actual versus projected patient activity and quickly adapt to variances, teams cannot set accurate admission, discharge, and other targets.
This limits the ability to track performance against these key performance indicators (KPIs) for longer-term operational planning and executive reporting.
Our solutions help you prioritize activities based on predicted discharge time and broadcasts the information to the full team so key KPIs are reliably met.
Efficiencies need to be gained by managing to variations, not to average hours per patient day (HPPD), validating credentials more easily, and ensuring the right patient-to-staff ratios and percentages of licensed staff for each unit.
Our capacity management solutions help providers manage to variations through team-wide patient flow transparency, accurate prediction of patient demand, and acuity-based staff scheduling.
Executives can review operational data for efficient resource deployment.
ALOS goals need improving through accurate patient tracking and synchronized care coordination.
Patient flow blockages also need to be resolved more quickly by increasing real-time visibility into clinical decisions and events, such as overdue medications, pending discharges, etc.
Our solutions visualize the patient journey throughout the hospital. Executives, physicians, nursing staff, environmental services, and transport all see the actions that need to be taken immediately to reduce ALOS.
