Our consultants work to uncover imbalances between existing supply and demand. We effectively use data to quantify the current state, map the experience, and develop solutions to build flexibility and resilience.
Data analysis: We begin by partnering with clients to conduct an initial data review and comprehensive data analysis. Analyzing metrics associated with patterns of inflow, patient volumes and throughput events assist in determining the impact on resource capacity.
Assessment: Review of the current flow uncovers strengths, inefficiencies, and gaps in care coordination for a deeper recognition of bottlenecks that impede flow. Onsite interviews and observations are conducted to validate findings.
Opportunities: Initiatives are identified for improved access, better communication and multidisciplinary collaboration, greater predictability during surges, and data driven decision-making to predict and manage constraints. Recommendations are made to address the organization’s specific challenges.
Implementation: Our consultants collaborate to prioritize and implement the agreed upon solutions that will transform patient flow across the continuum. They facilitate stakeholder workgroups to optimize future state, enhance flow, create data awareness and processes, and embed sustainable practices.
