It is common that as much as 50% of a patient’s admission and discharge days are spent on activities that adds no value to their quality of care. While the “problems” are observed in the Emergency Department where patients are being held as they wait for an available bed, the real cause of the problem is often deeply rooted in the inpatient care process. Blue Diamond Consulting provides clients with an opportunity to identify improvements to create bed capacity, where and when its needed.
Blue Diamond will conduct a comprehensive review of the inpatient care experience, from admission to discharge to assess the patient experience and length of stay (LOS) drivers, and identify improvement solutions to optimize the inpatient care process.
Key processes included as part of our assessment and analyses include, but are not limited to, the following:
Our tools and methodologies enable our clients to optimize resources within the existing capital asset structure and make measurable improvements to existing processes and performance while improving the quality of care and patient satisfaction.
Blue Diamond's combination of clinical experience, benchmarking capability and operational expertise is critically important to deliver the kind of results healthcare organizations are seeking.
