“Improving the Bottom Line by Optimizing Patient Throughput”
1.5 F2F ACHE Credits Awarded
Effective patient throughput is a challenge for most organizations even though a sound program can significantly affect operational costs, service capacity, and the patient experience. Creating good patient throughput includes strategies that closely align organizational structures, processes and people to initiate discharge execution at the time of admission.
Bringing these complex systems together requires an ongoing transdisciplinary approach to plan, manage and monitor each area’s metrics such as length of stay, patient holding and emergency department left without being seen, and patient satisfaction.
Results of a sound program may include increased bed capacity, improved revenue and reduced costs. This discussion will explore strategies to reduce excess inpatient days and create bed capacity through multiple interlocking clinical initiatives.
