Frequently Asked Questions
Patient flow is the movement of patients throughout your facility. It begins at the point of admission through to the actual discharge. Improving patient transportation within the hospital and other facilities includes allocating the correct amount of resources, having a strong scheduling system and the processes to deliver the patient to the right department on a timely basis. When was the last time your patient flow processes were assessed?
The concept of patient transportation is fairly straightforward, but the process of completing it successfully is rather complex. In order to smoothly progress a patient from admission to discharge often requires exposure to different departments, doctors, nurses and other staff. This can be incredibly difficult depending on volume of patients, services available, hospital capacity and more. A delay in one set of tests for the patient can slow down their treatment and results that the caregivers need in order to continue the healing process. An efficient process will increase patient satisfaction and more importantly often decrease their length of stay.
One patient transportation barrier can interrupt the entire hospital flow. The barriers can include delayed test results, seeing a specific specialist, or pre-certification. Medical procedures/test that are delayed can impact the average patient stay by two full days. Receiving the wrong or delayed medication can also impact a stay by over two days. A delayed doctor visit can add over a day of stay. It is important to identify the most impactful barriers that can delay the patient discharge and use technology and process improvements to resolve them. Consider a Soriant Assessment that can help you identify your barriers and the tools available to find the best sustainable solutions for your team and organization.
