Improve your hospital layout for easy navigation.

Today the healthcare environment realises that enhanced and efficient patient
flow is critical in achieving value-based health. Optimizing patient flow is
essential for healthcare facilities for two main reasons

  1. Patient Safety and
  2. Quality of care.
    Improving your patient flow is also a way to increase revenue and patient
    satisfaction.
    With technology, hospital leaders can generate the statistics which the
    administrators desire in real-time. AISHMED can help you improve your
    healthcare facility’s cost, productivity, and inspection success with their unique
    uniflow design flow across various departments and floors of your hospital.
    The joint commission standards also have laid a special emphasis on various
    design, flow and administrative parameters which are reproduced below.

The Joint Commission Standards for Accredited Hospitals

The Joint Commission addresses patient flow in a standard all Joint
Commission-accredited hospitals must comply with. The new patient
flow standard requires hospitals to:
 Create a process that supports the flow of patients through the hospital
 Address the hospital’s need to plan and care for the admitted patients
and whose bed is not ready or unavailable
 Address the need for the hospital to plan the care for patients who are
placed in an overflow location
 Formalize how ambulance diversion decisions are made and
implemented
 Requires the hospital to measure and set goals
 Manage patient “boarding” and work to reduce the length of time that ED
patients are boarded
 Review the measurement results against stated goals
 Take action to improve patient flow when goals are not achieved
 Communicate with behavioural health providers to strengthen the
coordination of care.
