The event will feature executives from Beaufort Memorial Hospital, a 197-bed facility in Beaufort, South Carolina, and SwedishAmerican Health System, a 333-bed, Illinois organization, explaining how they used key performance indicators (KPIs) to optimize and streamline patient-flow processes. They will also discuss the benefits they have experienced, including better coordinated care, reduced length of stay (LOS) and significantly decreased costs.

“Optimizing and Streamlining Patient Flow” is scheduled for Thursday, July 30, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. EDT. Because space is limited at this complimentary event, registration is required. Registration deadline is July 23, 2015.

Attendees will learn more about:

  • Insights from AHA’s Critical Conversations on Patient Flow from earlier this year about drivers in continued patient-flow improvements and how to reduce common obstacles to achieving them
  • The role senior leadership plays in improving care coordination, operational performance and the overall quality of care
  • How a patient-flow focused culture and staff education are important in improving patient throughput
