Scottsdale, Ariz.-based HonorHealth is implementing an artificial intelligence-driven operations system to help make patient flow more efficient.

The system, developed by Qventus, aims to cut inpatient and emergency department lengths of stay and decrease the number of patients who leave the ED without being seen.

The system helps streamline patient flow, identifying potential bottlenecks and suggests action that staff can take.

HonorHealth will launch the system in its EDs and inpatient divisions at three hospitals — Deer Valley Medical Center and John C. Lincoln Medical Center in Phoenix, and Scottsdale Shea Medical Center.
