A hospital’s Interventional Radiology (IR) team struggled to keep up with patient demand. Services ran late, days ran long, and their backlog surged. As inpatient and outpatient procedures strained capacity, the team's physicians, staff, and patients grew frustrated.
So, the IR team looked to their own data in AdaptX for creative management solutions. Fortunately, AdaptX’s Mission Control Center makes it easy for clinicians to ask questions about their own workflows: self-serve, on-the-fly, without needing data science support or IT intervention.
Looking across their group’s performance, IR team was able to surface best practices to optimize patient flow. And, because all of the clinicians could see and interrogate the data for themselves, the group was able to quickly able to come to consensus on their go-forward plan, with buy-in from IR physicians, anesthesiologists, and nurses.
Within just three weeks, the IR team had operationalized their best practices and were saving 34 minutes of in-suite time per case: over $8,500,000 in new capacity a year, without increasing costs!
With increased capacity, the IR team was able to improve access, serve more patients, and shorten waitlists. Clinician morale soared, reducing risk of burnout. More reliable scheduling and faster discharge times also improved patient satisfaction.
