Patient Leakage Infographic: 4 Factors that Cause Transfer Delays
If your healthcare organization experiences patient leakage, one of the culprits may be transfer delays.
MDsyncNET has developed an infographic to highlight four factors that cause transfer delays and contribute to patient leakage:
- Lack of processing standards: Community hospitals instead opt for facilities with streamlined transfer/call center processes
- Communication challenges: Back-and-forth calls consume valuable staff time for both the transfer center and the referring entity
- Multiple phone calls to find the right physician: Outdated on-call schedules and physician contact information create uncertainty
- Delayed admission approval: Patients are left in limbo while the physician waits for relevant information
