Early Discharge Planning:
Key to Reducing Length of Stay
Today, operational inefficiencies extend length of stay and result in a significant number of excess days. These excess days lock up bed and staff capacity, delay patients from returning to their families, and cost the average health system millions of dollars each year.
Fortunately, research shows that early discharge planning reduces excess days by 1.2 days per patient. But all too often, discharge planning is ad-hoc and inconsistent. Multidisciplinary discharge rounds (MDRs) are ineffective and highly variable, making length of stay reductions hard to achieve — and even harder to sustain.
It’s time for a new approach.
Highly Effective MDRs
Automate manual steps & reduce cognitive burden
AI & machine learning models learn from hospital operational patterns and analyze real-time EHR data to predict discharge date, disposition, and barriers to discharge specific to each patient. Combining probabilistic inference with process automation, Qventus autopopulates predictions directly into care plans when the models are highly confident, or makes recommendations for teams to confirm.
Automated Care Coordination
Break down silos to align teams toward a common discharge goal
Qventus watches care progression process steps and prompts action to support discharge. It drives automated care coordination workflows to resolve barriers, like prioritizing orders for ancillary services teams. As a result, ancillaries can complete orders in a timely manner, with fewer manual calls and interruptions to daily workflow.
Reinforce best practice behaviors and identify targeted improvements
Qventus allows leaders to close the loop and drive changes that stick. Its powerful analytics help leaders reinforce best practice behaviors, extend real-time support, and identify targeted improvement opportunities. Furthermore, it uses behavioral science principles to drive engagement, providing positive feedback when teams achieve goals.

We've seen a significant reduction in the number of messages that go to physicians. That helps them stay focused and keep their work moving so that they're not getting all of those interruptions throughout the day.
Qventus helps our frontline teams work at the top of their license by simplifying discharge workflows. That means less phone calls, less chasing down orders, and less chaos on the day of discharge for our patients and our staff.
Technology absent change management is often a wasted investment. With Qventus, we particularly liked their pathway to get people to effectively engage with the technology and change behaviors.
The machine learning that Qventus gives us is amazing. The estimated date of discharge prediction is something we never thought we’d be able to have at our fingertips.
