Slide 25

Cost Analysis of LWBS

Cost Analysis of LWBS

  • Net revenue (for real current LWBS payor mix)
    • Outpatient facility net revenue @ $300/visit discharge (90% of visits)
    • Inpatient facility net revenue @ $5,000/visit admission (10% of visits)
    • Professional provider net revenue @ $125/visit all (100% of visits)
  • 1% LWBS @ 50,000 visits = 500 visits
  • Lost opportunity net dollars for every 500 visits that LWBS
    • $135,000 facility outpatient revenue (450 pts x $300)
    • $250,000 facility inpatient revenue (50 pts x $5,000)
    • $62,500 professional revenue (500 pts x $125)
  • Cost of 1% LWBS at 50,000 volume = $447,500

Slide 27

Requires a leap of faith (1)

  • Requires a leap of faith (1)
    • Unlocking old behaviors
      • No registration up front and no deep dive triage
    • Dramatically different workflow for staff
      • Reduce scarce real beds to create more virtual beds??????
    • Patient perspectives
      • " I never got a bed!"
      • Privacy concerns
    • Physician issues
      • No compensation benchmarks for this kind of work. and it is uniquely different
      • EM MDs become internal customers.not comfortable position for them
      • Not every MD suitable for D2D, requires great risk stratification skills

Slide 28

Requires a leap of faith (2)

  • Requires a leap of faith (2)
    • New roles to manage with odd job descriptions
      • Flow techs and flow nurses
    • Administrative issues
      • "Only the uninsured leave"...not so
      • Its not about the expense, its about the return (ROI)
    • Staffing paradigm shift
      • MLPs and LPNs...may be perceived as threatening
      • Forget FTE hrs/visit...think cost/visit
    • Rules!
      • Lean processing at registration and quick look
      • Intake beds must be protected at all cost...almost.
      • Accountability for the WR
      • Internal queuing always...not in the WR
