Implementing site of care strategies: Decanting low-acuity patients to an outpatient setting

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CST

Hospitals today are focused on achieving four goals: aligning lower costs, improving outcomes, creating a better patient experience and improving provider satisfaction. What has become increasingly important is the right site of care with the right equipment, the right care team at that site, and the right education for that group on your new methods.

This webinar will provide key insights into site of care strategies for hospitals and health systems.

Participants will learn:

  • Why and how a site of care strategy was operationalized at Lehigh Valley Health Network
  • Key initiatives to align clinical and operational leadership to maximize your investment in robotic technology
  • How to analyze data to build a low-acuity outpatient strategy with the right task force, operations and scheduling in place
  • How to maintain growth and profitability with an inpatient robotic program while creating an outpatient robotic strategy
