Hospital workflows are interconnected. Bottlenecks in one department have a cascading effect throughout the entire system. When hospital patient flow is inefficient, the rate of patients leaving without treatment (LWOT) increases, the process of discharging patients slows, and all other processes are interrupted. This translates into lower admissions rates, longer length of stay (LOS) and lost revenue.
With InSites for Acute Care software solutions, you gain real-time visibility into the flow of patients, staff and equipment. Supplied with this automatically-collected information, staff can understand the demand for care and make resource adjustments. With objective before-and-after data, improvements in operational processes can be continuously made and measured to optimize patient flow and ensure the best use of resources.
InSites patient flow solution gives care teams visual indicators of the workflow process so they can anticipate what’s next and get ahead of bottlenecks. They can be proactive instead of reactive, which dials down stress and improves the experience for both staff and patients. With access to real-time data and historical reports, you’ll easily know if process changes work.
“…it truly has lessened the amount of time that [caregivers] need to worry about
everything going on in the background… [and instead] give better patient care at the bedside.”
– Division Clinical Specialist, VISN 11, Department of Veterans Affairs
Patient care should be driven by patients’ needs, not by the limitation of resources. With the shortage of nurses and doctors and increasing administrative burdens, you need to ensure your care teams are as productive as possible. This can be accomplished by using real-time operational solutions that help your teams bring everything together seamlessly at the point of care.
“It is extremely rewarding to see our staff so engaged with technology. Every day they come up with new and innovative ideas on how to use sensory data to provide the ultimate patient experience.”
