Optimizing the patient flow across an entire region

Managing the patient flow is important when running a modern, efficient, and organized hospital today. However, managing the patient flow and sharing patient information across multiple hospitals in a region is what future hospitals require.

 

”Managing the patient flow is important when running a modern, efficient, and organized hospital today.”

 

After a few years of running an efficient Clinical Logistics solution in a number of chosen departments, the Central Denmark Region decided to realize the full potential of professionalized patient flow management by gradually expanding the solution to cover more and more departments across the nine hospital locations in the region. 

A decision that has enabled the region to realize their vision of a more transparent hospital flow with focus on quality, collaboration and a better utilization of resources.

 

This type of regional setup enables the connected hospitals to access patient information across organizational borders, provides tools for a consistent and streamlined patient treatment, and enables a better incident management with access to capacity information from multiple emergency departments.

 

In addition, the hospitals can also ensure patient safety especially during transfers with clearly defined responsibilities and support each other with improved information and knowledge sharing in meeting regional expectations and established KPI’s.
