Hospital Flow Header 2018




Feel overcrowded? Need more inpatient beds, nurses? Do you realize you may be hemorrhaging millions because of FIXABLE problems with flow and length of stay? Don’t add a single bed or staff member until attending this conference. Maybe you won't need any.

There are 100’s of process improvements for flow, but only a handful actually work to FIX problems associated with an apparent lack of sufficient inpatient beds. Before you launch another initiative or hire another consultant, learn about the key processes that work (and ones that don’t), with practical advice from hospital experts with first-hand experience.

Hospital Flow - crowding


Join the leaders in hospital flow at the Innovation Leadership Challenge: Collaborating to Improve Hospital Flow, Save Lives and Reduce Costs pre-conference which offers battle-tested solutions so you can:

  • Improve efficiency in the ED, the hospital, and the OR
  • Reduce PACU boarding and bumping of surgical cases
  • Improve ICU bed access
  • Reduce or eliminate boarding of admitted patients in the ED
  • Improve safety measures such as hospital acquired infection, mortality, re-admissions, and other core measures
  • Reduce costs associated with inpatient care
  • Improve patient satisfaction with overall hospital care
  • Dramatically increase revenue by improving flow through the hospital
  • Decrease length of stay for inpatients and emergency patients
  • Reduce nursing burnout
  • Enjoy these improvements without any increase in staff or resources

Don’t waste your time with ineffective solutions. This conference focuses on the true “home runs” of flow improvement, with real life examples and practical advice. Adopting the practices described in this conference will reduce or entirely eliminate boarding, free up beds and staff, improve throughput, enhance patient satisfaction and safety, and sharply reduce costs.


Make plans to join us, so you can begin to make dramatic improvements in capacity and patient safety, all with decreased costs to your hospital. Included in this activity are practical workshops that will help the participants move from “what” to “how to make it happen”.
