Prevent discharge delays
Reduce patient holds
Drive team collaboration
Improve patient experience
- Up to 0.8 day decrease in LOS
- 30% reduction in excess days
- 30+ min / day saved per case manager
- 2x increase in morning discharges
Unnecessary hospital days are gridlocking capacity and choking margins
25% of hospital days are avoidable
The Advisory Board
1 in 5 patients experience gap in discharge planning
15% wasted occupancy from ineffective flow management
Institute for Healthcare Improvement
Multidisciplinary rounds vary from unit to unit. Teams spend hours chasing orders to completion. Leadership steps in only after discharges have already been delayed — and patients are boarded in the ED.
Hospitals have tried more EMR dashboards, bed boards, lean improvement projects, and more. But processes unravel as soon as focus shifts to the next initiative. Discharge planning upon admission remains out of reach, and avoidable delays continue to constrain bed availability and margins.
It’s time for a new approach.
Qventus applies artificial intelligence and behavioral science to optimize length of stay and resolve anticipated capacity bottlenecks in real time. Get ahead of supply and demand mismatches with predicted bottlenecks and barriers, automated orchestration workflows, and comprehensive tools to manage process variations and improve operational outcomes.
Reduce excess days
- Multidisciplinary discharge rounding
- Barrier resolution & analytics
- Long LOS planning
Resolve anticipated bottlenecks
- Proactive capacity management
- Morning discharge management
- Staffing to demand
Unlock capacity with reduced length of stay
Hardwire multidisciplinary discharge rounds with intelligence
Typical dashboards of open orders and barrier checkboxes make it hard to untangle what is truly a priority. Qventus combines evidence-based practices and AI to automatically surface key issues for teams to address days in advance of discharge.
Orchestrate barrier resolution through automation and embedded behavioral science
Machine learning intelligently prioritizes orders across inpatient units for radiology, therapy, pharmacy, and more. Collaborate in real time for urgent issues and reduce the manual back and forth, with behavioral analytics in the background identifying improvement opportunities
Drive changes that stick by holding teams accountable and celebrating wins
Scale leadership governance across units with automated issue escalations and continuous monitoring of process variations. Know which teams are slipping in discharge planning, which ancillaries are starting to back up, and which units to recognize for a job well done.
Quantify impact of your initiatives with statistically significant outcomes
Qventus data scientists use advanced statistical modeling to quantify the attributable impact of your initiatives on length of stay. Control for dozens of variables such as changes in case mix, patient volumes, the flu season, and more.
Resolve anticipated bottlenecks before they impact care
Situational awareness at every altitude
Gain complete situational awareness of real time and developing bottlenecks across altitudes. Powered by predictive analytics, Qventus mobilizes teams to get ahead of capacity gridlocks.
Avoid mid-day bottlenecks with consistent morning discharges
Identify morning discharges as part of your team’s standard MDR. With the care team aligned on which patients to focus on discharging before noon tomorrow, you can focus on addressing remaining discharge barriers today.
Adjust staffing to meet predicted demand
With line of sight into anticipated census across units, hospitals can proactively adjust staffing to meet patient census. Improve staff satisfaction with greater schedule predictability and fewer last-minute call-ins.
Maximize the value of your technology investment with expert services
The Qventus team of clinical operations experts and process improvement specialists works hand in hand with you to transform your patient flow operations based on proven methodology grounded in evidence-based best practices.
Define MDR pre-work
Script MDRs and align terminology
Leverage AI / ML to improve estimates
Develop morning discharge workflows
Establish barrier standard work
Through our work with Qventus, we’ve been able to decrease and sustain our LOS by 0.5+ days… that translates into 35 beds. We’ve improved staff and provider satisfaction, and our leadership engagement has never been higher...
It used to be a logistical nightmare figuring out what patients to prioritize. Now, we have line of sight days in advance and can get things started right away.
Physicians, nurses, social workers, and rehab therapists now partner as a team. Qventus has given them a new line of sight into flow issues.
