Seamless integrated cardiology solutions

Enhance operational efficiency through cardiology workflow analysis

Enhance operational efficiency through cardiology workflow analysis

Today, through data capture and analysis clinicians can see very clearly what was not visible in their department before and free up capacity in their operations when needed, whether that is cath lab utilization, patient scheduling or inventory management.
 

To identify departmental inefficiencies and continuously improve is important for the financial sustainability of the department and the organization. It is also critical in a value-based healthcare system where reimbursements reward patient outcomes. Just as data and insights support physician decision making at the point of care, it also can drive efficiency across the department – improving workflows and departmental performance measurement – which could potentially impact the patient’s length of stay.

Optimizing the length of stay in cardiology

Cardiovascular care delivery no longer hinges on individual department performance but on building bridges and bridging gaps that exist among providers, between sites, and across time. Read how we are partnering with hospitals to design and build new business and care models, to innovate care and manage risk.

“If you really want to move the needle in terms of healthcare outcomes and efficiencies you also have to look outside of the cath lab.”

Cardiology optimization starts with an assessment based on data analysis which is completed to determine baseline performance and establish KPIs. Through stakeholder interviews and on-site observations, a gap analysis of key performance measures is developed.
Heart icon
Leveraging an insights-based view of the patient journey, opportunities for improvement are identified, work teams are established—each focused on a specific process or KPI such as technology, wait times and scheduling—and market assessment helps determine strategic goals and new or revised clinical areas of focus.

Improving efficiency and increasing productivity in Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute Cath lab

 

Tasked with delivering the highest-quality and most technologically advanced care in the face of increased cost pressures requires rigorous efficiency in the daily operations of the organization. In value-based, outcome-driven healthcare systems, where reimbursements are not increasing but the complexity of patients’ diseases and the resources needed to treat them are, efficiency is vitally important for hospitals.
