Case Study

Care Transitions Emergency Department Solutions

April 5, 2024

BRG collaborated with a Southeastern US regional medical center referral system composed of two anchor hospitals and more than 700 inpatient beds. The two hospitals treat over 100,000 emergency department (ED) visits and discharge over 18,000 inpatients annually. The two hospitals struggled with excessive inpatient length of stay (LOS), resulting in over 26,000 combined excess days per year and an average LOS of 5.29 days. The inpatient struggles had downstream effects on ED admissions. These excess days created a decrease of inpatient capacity that didn’t meet the demand of ED patients, leading to over 46,000 annual hours of admission boarding in the EDs.
