Patient Activity Forecasting

Patient activity forecasting allows hospitals to understand future state demand and overall impacts to the resources required to support the demand. Blue Cottage teams provide a transparent and inclusive approach that brings together key stakeholders to vet and confirm forecasted patient activity and to understand the implications on resource requirements leading into the future state. A detailed analysis of patient volume, capacity, and throughput alongside operational process maps enables health systems the ability to pinpoint where opportunities for improved efficiencies reside and reduce bottlenecks in the patient journey. This level of analysis challenges staff and leadership on the status quo and to think differently about the operational approach to service delivery, which ultimately influences the programming and conceptual design of space.
