You know you have great health care providers. But are your systems and processes letting them maximize the time they spend with patients?

It's a deeply important question. Even the best, most talented, most compassionate health care providers are only as good as the context in which they practice. Organizations must set them up to do their best possible work. Only when patients flow smoothly through the care process can physicians, nurses, and other care providers execute their tasks efficiently and effectively.


Hardwiring Flow: Systems and Processes for Seamless Patient Care, by Drs. Thom Mayer and Kirk Jensen, delves into one of the most critical issues facing health care leaders today. Patient flow.
 
Essentially, it means patients spend exactly the right amount of time at every juncture in their journey through an organization—just enough time to maximize their clinical outcomes in the most cost-effective manner.

Readers will learn:
  • Why patient flow helps organizations maximize the "Three E's": Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Execution
  • How to implement a proven methodology for improving patient flow
  • Insights for improving flow's "teammates"—patient safety, customer service, risk management, and more
  • Why it's important to engage physicians in the flow process (and how to do so)
  • How to apply the prinicples of better patient flow to emergency departments, inpatient experiences, and surgical processes
