Qventus, the leader in care operations automation, today announced significant results achieved by health systems using the Qventus Inpatient Solution to automate discharge planning processes.

These health systems have reduced excess days by 30-50%, decreased length of stay (LOS) by up to a full day, and increased capacity by up to 20 beds per facility. These efficiency improvements enable health systems to accommodate more patients without adding new resources, which is critically important given both Covid-related capacity constraints and industry-wide staffing challenges.

Operational waste is a massive problem for healthcare today, costing nearly $200 billion annually. A significant portion of this comes from excess days — the number of days patients stay in the hospital longer than clinically necessary — which account for nearly 25% of all patient days. As a result, many healthcare organizations are aggressively pursuing new strategies to reduce excess days.

Qventus has enabled these efficiency improvements across hospitals of varying sizes, clinical models, and operational performance. Select examples include:

  • Large safety-net academic medical center reduced excess days by 0.7 days per patient, creating 17 new beds of capacity — the equivalent of an entire new unit
  • Suburban community hospital decreased excess days by 0.6 days per patient within 3 months of go-live, which equates to 18 new beds of capacity on an annualized basis
  • Regional medical center reduced LOS by over 1 full day for patients with early discharge plans, unlocking over 18 beds of new capacity

Importantly, these reductions in excess days and LOS have been achieved without negatively impacting readmissions. Click here to continue>>
