Case Study: Texas Children's Hospital
After a large-scale expansion, Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) experienced capacity constraint and availability issues. TCH engaged Huron Healthcare to implement a directed clinical operations improvement project, redesigning patient flow, optimizing technology, and coordinating care management to yield numerous benefits, among them:
- 18 hour decrease in severity-adjusted average length of stay;
- Capacity to serve 2,296 additional patients per year;
- 8 percent reduction in readmissions to the hospital within 48 hours;
- 38 percent reduction in acute care red census alert hours.
According to Tabitha Rice, Senior Vice President at TCH, “Huron has been an exceptional partner, helping us achieve results that are transformative for our organization in just a few short months. They provided immense value to Texas Children’s. The project was a tremendous success.”Download Now
