Geisinger release 8% of nursing time back to direct patient care


Geisinger Health System (GHS) are a large regional medical center, that have been on the forefront of innovative solutions to clinical and operational issues.

Prior research indicated that nurses on inpatient units spend upward of 15% of their time on logistics/supply chain tasks. A project was put in place to determine the actual nursing time spent doing logistics/supply chain tasks and to develop a new model for logistics inside the hospital.

.




By using simulation to test new ideas, new methods and their feasibility, answers were provided for quick and profitable decision making.

SIMUL8 Partner Efficiency Engineers’ extensive data-driven simulation provided GHS with the information necessary to make massive changes impacting its nationwide operations.
