The AHC of the Future: New Approaches to Capacity Optimization and Command Centers

November 10, 2016 

This online session, presented by University of Michigan Health System (“UMHS”) and The Johns Hopkins Hospital, in collaboration with national healthcare business advisory firm, GE Healthcare Camden Group, will focus on innovative, forward-thinking approaches two leading AHC systems have undertaken to improve patient flow and optimize capacity to achieve measurable outcomes, including designing and implementing a first-of-its-kind command center. Using both systems as case studies, the speakers will share their experiences, challenges, and successes with achieving capacity transformation without expansion, as they enable the transformation needed to thrive as an AHC of the future.
