As a follow up to our April communication that Optimium Health was named a finalist in the LifeBridge Health Entrepreneur Challenge. OHI will partner with LifeBridge Heath, specifically Sinai Hospital, to streamline the process of perioperative coordination with a leading-edge health IT solution.
Our mutual objectives are to 1) improve operating room throughput, 2) lower the cost per patient served, and 3) increase patient and staff satisfaction. Our overarching goal is to make the patient journey from first appointment to first incision as seamless and satisfying as possible.
To achieve this, OHI will tailor our clinical process orchestration engine, OPTIMI$ER, to the workflow needs of the Sinai perioperative team. This is likely to include task and summary dashboards, task alert and prioritization mechanisms, real-time posting and audit trail, and legacy system interface in order to eliminate data entry duplication. Pre- and post-implementation financial and satisfaction measures will validate the throughput, cost, and satisfaction objectives. We expect the OPTIMI$ER Perioperative Workflow Solution to provide a standardized framework for repeatable, measureable, and sustainable results while allowing for customization to meet the needs of individual hospitals.
LifeBridge Health consists of Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, Northwest Hospital, Samuelson Children’s Hospital, Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, Courtland Gardens Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and their subsidiaries and affiliated units, including LifeBridge Health & Fitness and the LifeBridge Medical Care Centers in Eldersburg, Mays Chapel and Reisterstown. Both Sinai and Northwest remain acute-care general hospitals with complementary clinical centers of excellence.
