2019 Hospital Patient Flow Management Forum

Revolutionary Strategies to Boost Hospital-Wide Patient Flow and Achieve Value Based Health: Improve Patient Centric Care, Enhance Admission to Discharge, Increase Revenues, Employ Technology/Data Analytics, Address Barriers to Care and More!

January 14 – 15, 2019 • Loews Portofino Bay Hotel  Orlando, FL

Today the nation’s healthcare environment has recognized that enhanced and efficient hospital-wide patient flow is essential in achieving value based health and delivering safe, high-quality patient centric healthcare. Hospitals and health systems are examining how to provide the right care, in the right place, and at the right time while reducing costs and eliminating waste. They are developing and implementing innovative and collaborative based interventions, and employing technology and real-time data information. Such strategies are improving hospital-wide patient throughput to reduce wait times, re-design care management, and move the patient smoothly and efficiently from admission to discharge. Enhanced patient flow results in appropriate high-quality healthcare, improved patient satisfaction, and increased hospital profitability.

We have created a high-level forum featuring knowledgeable leaders and executives from hospitals and health systems who will share their perspectives, valuable insights and expertise on how to be best equipped for the rapidly evolving landscape of Patient Flow Management. Attendees will benefit from learning about best practices and strategies that have been deployed to address the challenges presented under the current healthcare environment impacting hospitals and health systems in effectively managing patient flow. This exclusive event targets senior level executives in order to maximize educational and networking opportunities.

By attending the 2019 Hospital Patient Flow Management Forum, you will learn what others in the Patient Flow Management and Emergency Medicine arenas are doing to be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in 2019. Register today to reserve your seat at the conference and take advantage of early bird discounts!

Essential Alignment to Improve Hospital Wide Patient Flow: Overcoming the Corporate Immune System

Organizations are designed to protect the status quo. Frequently Patient Flow improvements are stymied by this "Corporate Immune System" that kills innovation or anything that runs counter to that status quo. You must intentionally address this alignment issue in order to have breakthrough improvements in Patient Flow.

Using a case study, the workshop will teach the participants how to identify the issues that will hinder improvement and walk them through a process proven to overcome these barriers and generate the alignment necessary to achieve breakthrough results.
