ProModel Solutions for Healthcare

Single ImageHealthcare professionals use the predictive analytic technology of ProModel in order to decrease costs and increase patient satisfaction, caregiver performance, and capacity.  This dynamic simulation software, along with ProModel’s expert consulting services also allows for seamless implementation and integration of the new technologies and systems that are being introduced to the healthcare industry at a rapid rate.

ProModel healthcare simulation solutions offer hospitals, health systems, clinics, and healthcare consultants the unique ability to perform accurate and fast predictive analysis of the specific impacts of operational, process, and layout changes BEFORE decisions are made.  This creates a level of detail, accuracy, and quantitative analysis that is simply unavailable through spreadsheets, flowcharts, traditional consulting methodologies, and other simulation software.


Today’s Healthcare Challenges:

Patient Flow

Patient Flow  - How do I determine the right type of staff, the optimum schedule, and the correct staffing requirements for optimized patient flow?

Variation in patient flow occurs throughout every hospital in the country.  This contributes to a number of pressing issues for healthcare executives:

  • Diversions
  • Extended waiting times for patients
  • Overcrowding and boarding in the emergency department (ED)
  • Bottlenecks in post-anesthesia care units (PACUs)
  • Lack of available beds for specific patient types, underutilized OR suites

Over time, patient flow problems can cause enormous stress throughout the institution, making it increasingly difficult for hospitals to recruit and retain key healthcare providers.  

  • How does an organization avoid the error of averages when examining patient flow?
  • How can you test to ensure there isn’t an unwanted effect on other key clinical areas of the hospital?
  • What is the impact on throughput as your patient demographics change over the next 5 – 10 years?

ProModel Solution:

  • High level capacity demand modeling and analysis
  • Stress your hospital system with higher volumes, changing patient types and acuity all within the risk free environment of MedModel software
  • Perform specific  clinic/department analysis
  • Analyze movement of patients through the hospital system: to identify capacity issues, locate department level bottlenecks, smooth scheduling and staffing

Workflow Process Improvement Initiatives 

Workflow Process Improvement Initiatives– Which one(s) should be implemented and how?
 
Consumers of healthcare are making more informed decisions and are actively seeking high-quality providers. More data is being made public about the performance of hospitals.  Health Systems must evaluate and improve their clinical processes to remain competitive in the face of declining reimbursement and uncertainty. As revenue is increasingly tied to the quality of care delivered within the institution, measuring, reporting and improving on clinical performance is key to a Health System’s survival.

ProModel Solution:

OR Optimiztion

    • Improve block scheduling
    • Examine and fully utilize OR resources and processes
    • Constraining ancillary services

ED Operations

    • Improve patient flow
    • Increase bed availability
    • Track highly variable arrival patterns
    • Test front end initiatives before implementing
    • Reducing long delays, LOS, LWOS, door-to-provider

Facility Planning 

Facility Planning – Do we have to expand or just re-design our existing facilities?

Older and ailing patient populations, new treatment patterns, advances in technology, as well as rapid changes in the entire healthcare reimbursement landscape are causing healthcare organizations to carefully examine the changes in the mix of inpatient and outpatient services. 

  • How does one optimize operational efficiencies?
  • Is more space really the answer to our patient flow problems?
  • When should healthcare organizations also allocate scarce capital resources for facilities?
  • What is the impact of new design on throughput, travel distances/times of patients and staff?
  • How do we transition into new facilities?

             ProModel Solution:

    • Capacity analysis
    • Re-designing room layouts
    • Optimized room and resource utilization
    • Process changes

New Technology Evaluation and Implementation

New Technology Evaluation and Implementation

There is a mind-boggling array of technology available today and it is continuously increasing, making it nearly impossible to objectively and accurately evaluate which solution is the best fit for a given situation. Some of this new technology includes medical equipment, computers, internet services, drug and supply material handling equipment, electronic information flow and storage, and patient and asset tracking just to name a few.

                ProModel Solution:

    • Test one type of technology vs. another
    • Evaluate similar technologies from different vendors
    • Analyze implementation strategies
    • Develop technology integration plans
