Better capacity management: The prescription health systems need

The economics of healthcare has never been more challenging than it is today. Hospitals and health systems don't have adequate free cash flow to build new operating rooms or beds. Meanwhile, staff shortages and the possibility of worsening patient experiences remain major concerns. The only viable option for hospitals and health systems to survive and grow is to derive more value from existing assets.

With better capacity management, organizations can handle more OR cases without having to add staff and resources, reduce length of stay by identifying and eliminating barriers to discharge, and schedule staffing levels proactively based on more accurate demand forecasts. 

During an April summit hosted by Becker's, healthcare leaders nationwide came together to discuss strategies and best practices surrounding capacity management. This white paper offers a summary of the discussion and includes perspectives from the following organizations:

  • Gundersen Health System (La Crosse, Wisc.)
  • UCHealth (Aurora, Colo.)
  • Rush University Cancer Center (Chicago)
  • Nebraska Medicine (Omaha)
