How to anticipate and address emerging patient flow bottlenecks

Overview

An effective throughput approach is customized to an organization’s market and bottlenecks—both of which change over time. To sustain throughput gains, organizations will need built-in mechanisms to regularly recalibrate flow strategy.

 

Predict and plan for point-in-time demand surges

Tactic One

Sudden increases in demand or seasonal trends can disrupt even the best patient flow operations. There are many surge plan options available, but they need to be hardwired to avoid unnecessary delays in care.

 

Centralize data and oversight to increase system-level line of sight

Tactic Two

Centralizing oversight can help you execute on enterprise-wide data to more accurately direct resources and provide an integrated approach to tackling bottlenecks. Many organizations may not be ready for this approach—and that’s okay. But as throughput technology advances, this is where leaders will find their most impactful throughput gains.
