Patient Route Systems today announced that Boston Medical Center (BMC) has selected PatientRoute’s Healthcare Operations Platform to improve their efficiency. BMC’s decision was based on extensive testing and an assessment that provided actionable opportunities to save significant money while increasing patient safety and quality of care.

PatientRoute’s unique cloud-based platform is purpose-built for hospitals providing powerful capacity planning and patient flow tools allowing hospitals to better understand, plan and manage their surgical and medical demand. Combining widely accepted operations management science and clinical policy, the system is used to optimize surgical schedules, in-patient and operating room capacity, wait times, length of stay and discharge processes.

Using PatientRoute, BMC can easily and rapidly develop and measure key operational metrics to inform their ongoing operational improvements as well as their 2017 initiative to consolidate two buildings. In addition, using PatientRoute’s what-if engine, BMC can adjust its block schedule to optimize both the Perioperative Theater and post-surgical units in the hospital.

“We’ve been very impressed how easy it has been for PatientRoute to incorporate our data and provide us with timely analytics so we can make well informed decisions,” said Dr. Alastair Bell, Chief Operating Office at BMC. “There are so many good ideas at BMC, but this is the first tool that helps me see the potential impact of different options ahead of time. This will be critical for improving quality for our patients and the efficiency of our hospital. We have already identified up to $3M of potential savings, which is exciting.”

“We are honored to have an institution as progressive and innovative at BMC select PatientRoute’s platform,” said Rich Krueger, CEO of PatientRoute. “New tools are required by hospitals to understand and manage capacity, patient flow and reduce variability to increase patient quality and reduce expenses. We are delighted to see that BMC recognizes these needs.”
