Observation Management

How are you managing Observation Patients?

Unrefined observation practices negatively impact revenue, patient throughput, and patient experience, especially when hospitals do not have a dedicated observation unit.


Is your facility:

  • Missing revenue opportunities?

  • Admitting patients as observation when they really should be inpatients?

  • Struggling to optimize bed availability for inpatients?

  • Managing inpatients and observation patients the same way?

If so, your hospital could experience an impact of $4,000 per case revenue improvement for inpatient admission vs observation, and cost reduction of $500 per avoidable day by implementing our solution.

With Observation Management, our healthcare leaders and process engineers combine best practice approaches to observation patient management, resulting in optimized revenue and maximized bed capacity for inpatients. Care Logistics provides both assessments, as well as implementation of best practices.
