The Second Curve of Patient Flow

The demand for better value in health care is driving new models that are changing the flow of patients through the system. The “system” itself doesn’t begin and end at the provider’s door – patient flow now reaches into the community, before and after the care experience. While managing capacity and smoothing throughput are still crucial, new objectives and obstacles arise as we advance toward the second curve.

Health Forum is proud to partner with a number of health care companies that are delivering new tools and solutions to help hospitals successfully address new patient flow challenge as we move toward a more value-based system of care.

In addition to sponsoring “Critical Conversations” around the country to bring together hospital C-suite executives and solution providers to discuss ways to innovate around patient flow, we are also pleased to provide you with valuable resources on the topic. See below:
