Learn about the next steps in improving healthcare delivery and facilities operations.
Patient Flow is the operational state when a healthcare facility is functioning at the top of its ability: moving patients through the care experience in a fluid process, providing the necessary resources as needed, coordinating between teams for a fluid healthcare experience for both clinicians and patients.
The pressures of value based healthcare mean that cross departmental collaboration is essential to achieving operational excellence.
Improving operations requires some positive change. Improved clinician satisfaction requires a complete strategy for removing obstacles to success.
Developing partnerships and collaboration will provide opportunities for shared learning, and create accountability across departments
Create consistent reporting structure between departments.
Give staff the tools to input and influence their process and the ability to get the information they need most.
Capture data beyond your hypothesis - across the care continuum.
What are hospitals doing poorly?
Relying on passive EHRs that are focused on data not operations.
Inadvertently create barriers to access operational information and communication
Measurable operational data lost to analog tools with no memory
Patient flow is attainable when healthcare facilities have the right tools for collaboration and measurement.
