An integrated, whole of health strategy is essential in providing patients with an appropriate and timely level of care. Hospitals from across the country must develop sustainable processes that support the entire patient journey.
This and more was discussed at the recent Improving Patient Flow Conference, which focused on strengthening governance through effective communication and collaboration, improving processes through clinical service redesign and utilising technology and data to drive the patient journey.
Integrated Strategies to Improve Patient Flow, taking place in Sydney this September, will continue the conversation by addressing how health services can better integrate their service design both in and around hospitals to improve transition of care.
