Big Data to improve Patient Flow

Computerized dashboards have been popular in various industries for some time because their meters, gauges and charts provide instant understanding of where an organization’s performance is versus pre-set goals at any point in time. Now, high-performing health systems across the nation are deploying dashboards to promote quality improvement and accountability. According to a recent report by the Health Research and Educational Trust they’re also using these tools to manage capacity in real time in order to squeeze as much productivity from existing resources as they can.

Patient Flow Dashboards

Patient Flow Dashboards application lets you see a “live” enterprise-wide snapshot, including a multi-campus roll-up, of your healthcare organization’s operational performance, moment by moment. This can help hospital systems avoid bottlenecks and delays as they develop, without the details of reports, which are often geared toward historical trend analysis.

Correct Bottlenecks and Inefficiencies

When you spot a small problem, you can correct it before it becomes a big problem. And that can be a critical benefit to your organization when you consider that optimizing patient flow and capacity is perhaps the most immediate way to improve operational performance.

Big Data Dashboards

The Patient Flow Dashboard is an important element of Locatible’s Business Analytics Division, which was created to give hospitals a finely honed, better-informed approach to managing operations in response to health care reform challenges. Although Locatible has been recognised as the leading provider of actionable data for improving patient flow, its reports were look-backs of the previous day, week, month or year. The Patient Flow Dashboard makes that storehouse of performance data available in the present, so operations can be managed in real time, with immediate transparency and accountability.

KPIs for Hospital Monitoring

The Patient Flow Dashboard displays Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) collected by Locatible’s applications as easy-to-read visual indicators on a single screen. These KPIs generally are presented in graphic form as a ratio of actual performance to target, so users can instantly know if they’re off plan without concentrating on the metric. And Locatible has designed in the flexibility to integrate data from other sources, such as the ED and OR.
