About the Program
Join us
on February 16 at Maggiano’s in Buckhead as our panel of experts looks at “Improving the Bottom Line by Optimizing Patient Throughput.”

Effective patient throughput is a challenge for most organizations even though a sound program can significantly affect operational costs, service capacity, and the patient experience. Creating good patient throughput includes strategies that closely align organizational structures, processes, and people to initiate discharge execution at the time of admission.

Bringing these complex systems together requires an ongoing transdisciplinary approach to plan, manage and monitor each area’s metrics such as length of stay, patient holding and emergency department left without being seen, and patient satisfaction. The results of a sound program may include increased bed capacity, improved revenue, and reduced costs. This discussion will explore strategies to reduce excess inpatient days and create bed capacity through multiple interlocking clinical initiatives.

Panelists Will Discuss:

  1. Tactics for improving emergency department throughput
  2. Realigning the operating room schedule to support throughput
  3. Optimizing bed specialty configuration
  4. Strategies for engaging interdisciplinary teams
  5. Roles of care management, hospitalists, and others in patient throughput
  6. Reducing practice variation

Networking Time
Registration opens at 11:30 am and we will have 30 minutes of networking time before and after the program, with plenty of time for questions and answers during the program. Lunch will be served beginning at 11:30 am.
