Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
Care Logistics® has launched the Care Milestones website to share ideas and promote discussion about innovative ways to dramatically improve hospital patient throughput and care with logistics.
“Patient throughput is the heart of hospital operations, but hospitals still struggle to establish predictable and reliable performance in throughput,” said Doug Walker, editor of Care Milestones and vice president of marketing for Care Logistics. “We launched CareMilestones.com to focus on the use of logistics in patient care—the same concepts and processes that get your package delivered on time succeed robustly in hospital care coordination.”
Hospital financial and operational expert Samantha Platzke, CEO of Ohio-based hospital consulting firm Remarkable Results, welcomed the new website.
“As hospitals shift from volume-based to value-based care, they must reduce costs and improve quality measures by 40 to 50 percent,” said Platzke. “Logistics for patient throughput is the key to such substantial results, and I’m excited to see this new forum for hospital leaders to discuss and learn more about transforming operations through logistics.”
Platzke went on to note the dramatic results she has seen in her operational leadership experience with hospitals that embrace logistics for throughput. She has seen hospitals reduce length-of-stay by as much as a full day, increasing effective bed capacity by hundreds of beds. With a logistical foundation for operations in place, she said, the hospitals can sustain these gains while keeping costs low and improving quality and satisfaction.
