Care Logistics Care Progression Components

As hospitals focus on Care Progression as a core initiative to provide financial gains and services expansion, Care Logistics is now offering our members the option to deploy Care Progression components of their Hospital Operating System™

Formerly offered as a package, Vizient MidSouth members can now purchase Care Logistics’ Hospital Operating System™ components separately and later phase in the adoption of the overall system. This will enable members to spread out the cost over a longer period of time.

The Care Progression component offerings are focused on achieving dramatic improvement in quality patient progression (QPP) measures while supporting regulatory and compliance requirements. Here is a snapshot of technology enabled services components that can be individually implemented:

Care Progression Optimized – Patient statusing, patient progression plans, nursing/ED throughput
  • QPP Measures: LOS reductions, CMI increases, capacity throughput and growth
  • Compliance: Mandatory bundles, 2-midnight rule, CMS short stay reviews, SNF 3-day stay rule, CMS D/C proposed rule
Operational Transformation – Engineering and nursing services to implement hub and spoke care coordination utilizing existing technology infrastructure
  • QPP Measures: Significant LOS reductions, CMI increases, LWOT reductions, capacity throughput and growth, stronger HCAHPS scoring, patient safety measures
  • Compliance: Mandatory bundles, 2-midnight rule, CMS short stay reviews, SNF 3-day stay rule, CDI compliance and audit, readmission reduction program, Joint Commission EP standards
Order Logistics – Managing simultaneous order volume and service area throughput
  • QPP Measures: Reducing diagnostic operating costs, increasing outpatient growth, LOS reductions
  • Compliance: HCAHPS, HACRP, Mandatory Bundles
Intake Logistics – Patient admission to appropriate care level/setting
  • QPP Measures: Capacity throughput and growth, admission efficiency, identify readmission risks
  • Compliance: EMTALA

The deployment time for most of the component packages is less than nine months, with a documented return on investment of 5x to 10x. Care Logistics also utilizes a methodology that creates financial returns during the deployment. Hospitals can achieve this significant return on investment utilizing their operating expense budget with a much smaller capital outlay.

Since implementing this approach for other hospitals, Care Logistics’ clients have seen tremendous financial and quality results. These successes have been featured in the following Becker’s Hospital Review article:
