GE Healthcare Survey Reveals Many Healthcare Organizations Not Prepared For Capacity Management Challenges

Myers explains, “The hospital is a complex organism. We can now draw data from multiple information sources and make nonlinear references between seemingly disparate areas of the organization to better manage capacity today and in the future.”

Stewart adds, “Most organizations expect to improve their operations and patient flow to accommodate a higher throughput of patients, but are being limited by widespread lack of interconnected data to inform them of how they are operating at a holistic level. That’s where congestion problems lie, beds are sitting empty and patients are facing long wait times. Though most hospitals collect patient flow data at the department level, few have mechanisms to share and pool it for hospital executives to evaluate and plan for future scenarios. Collecting capacity management data to analyze performance across the entire care continuum is critical to hospitals’ ability to care for growing numbers of patients in fewer steps and reduce unnecessary operational costs.”

The business announced the survey results from the floor of the annual HIMSS conference in New Orleans this week. For additional information regarding the survey and its findings, please visit the HealthLeaders website.
