Overview

Today the nation’s healthcare environment has recognized that enhanced and efficient hospital-wide patient flow is essential in achieving value based health and delivering safe, high-quality patient centric healthcare. Covid-19 and the environment surrounding the pandemic has had a profound impact on hospital patient flow. Hospitals and health systems are examining how to provide the right care, in the right place, and at the right time while reducing costs and eliminating waste. They are developing and implementing innovative and collaborative based interventions, and employing technology and real-time data information. Such strategies are improving hospital-wide patient throughput to reduce wait times, re-design care management, and move the patient smoothly and efficiently from admission to discharge. Enhanced patient flow results in appropriate high-quality healthcare, improved patient satisfaction, and increased hospital profitability.

We have created a high-level forum featuring knowledgeable leaders and executives 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. Attendees will benefit from learning about best practices and strategies that have been deployed to address the challenges presented under the current healthcare environment impacting hospitals and health systems in effectively managing patient flow. This exclusive event targets senior level executives in order to maximize educational and networking opportunities.

By attending the 2021 Hospital Patient Flow Management Conference, you will learn what others in the Patient Flow Management and Emergency Medicine arenas are doing to be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in 2022!

We look forward to greeting you in Las Vegas!
