Balanced System Utilization (less variance between sites)

Measure:
12% - 20%
Details:
A year-plus into the faster, more efficient and streamlined system, OHSU is declining fewer transfers, sending more to its partner hospitals, Adventist and Tuality, and increasing its own occupancy. Mission Control has created the equivalent of 7.4 beds a day at the main campus, while the two smaller hospitals have accepted more than 500 transfer patients. The return-on-investment has been seven times what OHSU invested, though the university is keeping the exact amount confidential for what it calls competitive reasons.When comparing Q1 2018 to Q1 2019, Mission Control enabled AdventHealth to double the number of patients transferred from the ED at a hospital with high-demand beds to a facility with greater capacity. These "overcapacity lateral transfers" increased from 120 during the first quarter of 2018 to 241 during the same period in 2019, says Porteous.
