Patient throughput is vital to overall hospital productivity. It is often difficult to capture the key points within hospital workflow where patient throughput is compromised, and therefore, a barrier to efficient patient care (which can then impact patient satisfaction as well). AMS consultants are experts in identifying how to monitor, analyze output data, and improve patient throughput.
