Improving Medical Floor Throughput via Patient Assignment
So far this flu season more than 120,000 patients have been hospitalized. While not significantly higher than in other years, the CDC warns the spread may not have peaked.
Fluctuations in admissions rates are nothing new, however, information technology solutions are emerging that can help mitigate effects of higher utilization. One such solution, Assign, leverages existing data-streams (EMR, registration, provider schedule) to make optimized patient assignments in the context of balanced workloads.
Join Ryan Secan, MD MPH, a medical technologist and hospitalist, at a brief webinar talking about how medaptus Assign enables busy medical floors to seamlessly achieve the best patient assignments (based on geography, continuity or a mix of the two), and why this workflow-based approach is a strategic place to start for improved throughput.
