Inpatient Units

In-Patient Units Workflow Orchestration – Common Issues:

  • Delayed test result notification (e.g. lab, radiology, etc.)
  • Delayed physician discharge order
  • Medications not reconciled and/or not ready
  • Primary Care Provider not notified
  • Social services not notified
  • Delayed transportation notification
  • Discharge facility not ready
  • Discharge follow-up not coordinated

In-Patient Units Process Inefficiency is Costly

Overall Patient Flow: Late-in-the day discharges have a significant impact on hospital costs and patient goodwill. Each delay can contribute to expensive patient flow backups — from regular admissions and emergency department to the post-anesthesia care unit. Readmissions: Poor discharge planning and post-discharge care coordination can lead to penalties for 30-day readmissions.

Efficient In-Patient Workflow Brings Rewards
