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. Simply input data on your staffed beds, annual discharges and ALOS, and the tool calculates your current utilization rate. The Capacity Optimizer toolkit also allows you to test various approaches, in order compare how different operational scenarios will change utilization and the corresponding financial impact. This is a web-based toolkit and requires a web browser for viewing.
