How to optimize hospital discharge practices with intelligent automation
Hospital patient flow initiatives characteristically include a focus on the patient discharge process, setting goals to have discharges occur by a specific time of day. And for good reason: Reducing avoidable delays and managing capacity to ensure beds are available for incoming patients are key goals for implementing effective and sustainable discharge practices.
In this eBook, we review hospital discharge processes and discuss the challenges. We also outline how intelligent automation is being used in hospitals and health systems of all sizes to achieve three simple steps for consistently managing patient discharges:
- Identify discharges early
- Develop both system- and unit-level actions
- Assign and manage specific items to take action
