Managing inpatient capacity is one of the most critical challenges for health systems. It requires a daily balancing act of coordinating bed availability, patient throughput, and staffing needs in unison to ensure optimal patient care and collaboration across care teams to ensure timely discharges and make room for new patient admissions. While leaders and frontline teams start each day with the goal of providing timely and high quality, timely care for their patients, unexpected issues such as discharge barriers and delays, unbalanced staffing, patient boarding, changing priorities, and many others occur which ultimately impact their ability to achieve their patient care goals.
