There are better ways to predict patient demand and avoid bed shortages.

Drawing on international experience and years of NHS engagement and comparisons Dr Rod Jones is using modern data mining and analysis techniques to lead a rethink of the strategies for avoiding repeated bed shortages in NHS trusts at key times of the year.

This briefing:

  • Presents new ways of looking at your patient flow
  • Helps finance staff budget better 
  • Improves operations teams' ability to allocate resources and staff  
  • Shows how commissioning groups make interventions that can make a difference to admissions and discharge

Despite receiving increasingly complex analysis and recommendations in 2016, early 2017 once again saw many trusts struggling to find enough beds for their patients.

Watch this briefing to discover answers to how we may be able to confront the bed shortage issue and ease it's disruptive and dangerous impact on care.
