The rate of hospital admissions is increasing; however, the healthcare infrastructure is not growing at a similar pace, hence leading to overburdening and inadequate flow in the healthcare system. Flow is the part of a patient care pathway in which the movement of patients, information, or equipment flows between organization, departments, or staff. Inadequate patient flow management can lead to problems such as overcrowding in the emergency department, excessive waiting time, delayed surgeries in the operating room schedule, shortage of availability of ICUs and medical beds, overburdened staff, poor patient outcomes, and higher rate of complications. Healthcare providers are progressively adopting patient flow management solutions in order to manage patient flow, reduce burden on staff, and meet consumer expectations. Patient flow management solutions use real-time data inputs and combine them with analytical and statistical software in order to design efficient work flow. It helps to provide enhanced healthcare at reduced costs, and improving the flow of patients is one way of bettering healthcare services. Patient flow management solutions are used to improve the patient flow, and enhance the hospital efficiency in a bid to deliver premium healthcare services to the patients. It helps to optimize hospitals operations in real-time and reduce overcrowding, enhance patient experience, decrease the length of stay, accelerate patient movement, and provide actionable data for continuous improvement. It also helps the hospitals to better utilize their existing capacity. Patient flow management solution has become essential for the hospitals in order to streamline patient flow outcome and cost management.
