Capacity Optimizer Tool
GE Healthcare created The Capacity Optimizer Self-Assessment Toolkit to assist with effective hospital capacity management. There are many variables to consider, which include: the number of staffed beds (medical, surgical, ICU), annual discharges, and average length of stay (ALOS). Managing these variables; such as reducing staffed beds in certain units, or increasing bed turnover, may help you achieve target utilization. The Capacity Optimizer Self-Assessment Toolkit provides data that can help hospitals develop strategies for improving utilization.
Care Design: Emergency Department (ED) Assessment Tool
Developed by GE Healthcare, the ED Assessment Tool is a web-based tool that walks the user through a series of 21 questions regarding their present ED. The tool will then provide a 'score' of the ED facility and recommendations on what factors need to be analyzed further and improved upon.
Optimizing Patient Flow: Moving Patients Smoothly Through Acute Care Settings
IHI believes that the key to improving flow lies in reducing process variation that impacts flow. While some variability is normal, other variation is not and should be eliminated. Hospitals working with IHI have tested a range of changes to reduce process variation and improve flow. These changes are described in this white paper. The report is available as a PDF, requiring Adobe Reader.
