As health systems seek to improve operational efficiency, many are pursuing strategies to reduce length of stay through more effective discharge planning. However, there is sparse existing literature around specific best practices and the true effectiveness of these initiatives.
New industry-leading research from Qventus uncovers and quantifies best practices for reducing excess days by analyzing nearly 370,000 patient visits across hospitals of different sizes, clinical models, and levels of performance.
In this white paper, learn about:
- Key strategies to decrease excess days by 1.2 days per patient
- Specific methods to reduce 1.4 excess days per patient for discharges needing post-acute care
- Established approaches of hardwiring these data-driven best practices
