Enhance capacity and throughput

Optimizing capacity and patient flow in the hospital and across the system is critical to improving patient access and satisfaction, and delivering the best value for the patient.

At GE Healthcare Consulting, we can help you identify key priorities for the design and implementation of your new care delivery model.

Additionally, as the shift of care delivery continues to accelerate beyond the four walls of an acute care hospital to the full continuum of care, managing the health of a population requires a refreshed approach to coordinating people, processes, and tools in your hospital(s) with those in primary care provider offices, specialty clinics, managed care plans, and post-acute venues to achieve an integrated approach.

GE Healthcare Consulting’s care delivery solutions, guided by our proprietary Digital Twin simulation modeling analytics platform, can help you identify, prioritize and implement comprehensive capacity and throughput opportunities while considering the best ways to enhance care team collaboration and expand your services to the communities you serve.

Our care delivery experts can help you evaluate your current care delivery model for key processes including:

Length-of-stay management

Strategic capacity and care delivery planning

Discharge / transition planning

Multi-disciplinary rounds

Utilization review

Readmission prevention

Clinical variation
