We look forward to continuing providing you with the best possible conference experience now and when we meet again in person.

About the Conference

Today, patient flow has become a major concern for most hospitals and health systems as both the human and financial aspects result in poor quality care, patient dissatisfaction and lower reimbursement and profitability. Optimizing hospital wide patient flow is critical in delivering high quality patient centric healthcare. Hospitals are examining how to provide the right quality care, in the right place and at the right time.

The influx of the newly insured entering the healthcare system presents greater challenges to hospitals and the necessity to streamline flow and capacity has become enormously vital. As this landscape continues to evolve and dramatically transform, there is a huge shift towards hospital wide collaboration and throughput in order to achieve these goals. Optimizing the ED, decreasing patient wait times and enhancing care coordination are key components to moving the patient quickly, efficiently and safely through the hospital system.

This event features leaders 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.
