The Reducing Length of Stay module for hospitals identifies and prioritizes actionable bottlenecks that may create barriers for patients being discharged in a timely manner.

Problem of prioritization

Often, hospital staff are overwhelmed with requests and have difficulty prioritizing tasks which then increases hospital length of stay. This lack of clear direction can cause delays with patient discharges which, in turn, impacts staffing needs, patient satisfaction, and insurance reimbursements.

surfaces barriers

Powered by Pieces’ advanced machine learning technology, the hospital length of stay worklist reviews all clinical documentation and uses existing data from the Electronic Health Record (EHR) to surface potential discharge barriers in real time and helps identify on whom to focus first.

Factors reLOS addresses

Better identify and prioritize patients closest to discharge.
Know the steps needed to enable a timely discharge.
Flag needed tests or procedures to avoid lapsing over into additional days admitted.
Be alerted to known factors that determine each patient’s risk of excess hospital length of stay.
Risk can be mitigated in real time by coordinating and prioritizing the steps needed for a timely discharge.

“The challenge that we face executing length-of-stay reduction programs is to determine who can be discharged and how to prioritize the limited staff and resources that we have in order to help them prioritize and discharge patients.”
