Rogers Behavioral Health partnered with Watson Health Simpler to identify workflows that could be improved to allow staff to treat more patients and improve the patient and family experience.
- The transformation
By working with Simpler, Rogers Behavioral Health streamlined its screening process and benchmarked its evidence-based treatment plans against industry best practices.
- The results
Rogers Behavioral Health has reduced its process for admissions from area emergency departments from three hours to 64 minutes, its patient screening process from two hours to 40 minutes, and as a result, is seeing 1,000 more patients per year and achieving better outcomes.
