How Boston Medical Center Uses Automation for Early Discharge Planning

Monday, March 28th, 2022 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT  

Research shows that early discharge planning can significantly reduce length of stay. But all too often, discharge planning is unstructured, chaotic and lacking engagement — and staffing challenges make it even harder. As a leader focused on reducing length of stay and improving care coordination, what can you do?

In this webinar, discover how Boston Medical Center and other leading health systems have successfully combined innovative technology with multidisciplinary rounds to move discharge planning upstream, resulting in decreased excess days, reduced manual burden for frontline teams and improved patient experience.

Join clinical operations experts from BMC and Qventus to learn the evidence-based best practices that finally make discharge planning at admission a reality.

In this session you will learn how to:
  • Decrease excess days by 30-50%
  • Set up MDRs that promote proactive discharge planning
  • Reduce workload for nurses, physicians and care managers
