Bethesda Health, Inc., comprised of not-for-profit hospitals Bethesda Hospital East and Bethesda Hospital West, has announced a partnership with Care Logistics® to adopt the Hospital Operating SystemTM. The collaboration, entitled Commitment-2-Care or “C-2-C,” advances Bethesda’s focus to deliver exceptional care to their patients through a real time approach ensuring that patients receive the right care, at the right time and at the right place.
“Our partnership with Care Logistics allows us to amplify the best of what we already do in terms of delivering compassionate, quality care to each and every patient,” said Roger Kirk, FACHE, president and CEO of Bethesda Health. “The Care Logistics system combines bold new thinking with centralized care coordination and logistics software to drive continuous improvement in patient care outcomes, safety and quality.”
Kirk said the partnership with Care Logistics supports the hospital’s goal of creating a high-performing organization that delivers on reliability, efficiency, safety and quality for the benefit of patients, families, physicians and other caregivers.
“We are proud to be a partner with Bethesda Health, an organization that represents the future of how hospitals will ensure the best quality care for patients,” said Karl Straub, president of Care Logistics. “By improving and accelerating patient care coordination activities across the hospital, Bethesda creates the best environment for physicians and other caregivers to focus on direct, responsive and personal care of their patients.”
Care Logistics has created the first logistical control system to orchestrate patient throughput and care delivery. The Hospital Operating System combines logistics software, centralized care coordination and hands-on problem solving techniques to dramatically improve communications and care activity handoffs across all departments and caregivers. Among the results hospitals have achieved by working with Care Logistics:
- Place patients efficiently and appropriately from the ED to appropriate units
