Capacity Management

Integrated capacity planning to control costs and workload

Given the scarcity on the labor market, the impending network collaborations and the increase in patient expectations, hospitals are more than ever engaged in gaining insights into available capacity and the optimization of it. In the hospital world, capacity issues need to be approached across the different departments as shifts can have a major impact within the care chain.

Möbius introduces integrated capacity planning

so that capacity is optimized throughout the entire care chain.

Our solutions

By analyzing, simulating and optimizing data, we optimally align consultation scheduling, surgery scheduling, bed scheduling and staffing plans, to ensure the existing capacity is utilized in the best way. The ability to simulate scenarios allows for quick changes to be made if necessary, in order to tailor the staff deployment to the needs.

Policlinic

Möbius assists in determining the required capacity. Not only current needs and predicted future needs are taken into account, but also the financial impact of the current way of working. The management structure is tailored to the personnel organization, the treatment rooms are used efficiently, waiting times are reduced to a minimum, and changes can be made quickly to minimize the potential negative impact on the performance.

We developed a tool to monitor the occupancy of the policlinic.

Performance

Hospital Ward

Möbius assists in gaining insight into the current bed occupancy and the required capacity need in the future, by means of scenario analyses. The average length of stay is optimized and stabilized while maintaining quality and patient satisfaction, hence increasing the predictability of bed requirements. Discharge and admission management is improved by enhancing inter-departmental cooperation or by minor changes such as implementing a discharge and/or admission lounge.

We developed a tool to monitor the occupancy of the hospital ward.

Operating room

Möbius optimizes the current OR operations by evaluating five factors: management, occupation, staffing, material flows and patient experience. Considering the hospital strategy and the combined capacity of the polyclinic, the psychiatric ward and the bed facility, the OR capacity is adjusted so that your ORs can be used efficiently and waiting lists can be eliminated.

We developed a tool to monitor and benchmark the occupancy in the operating room.

We developed a tool to simulate the impact of the delayed interventions on the OR planning and the hospital ward.

Emergency room

Möbius optimizes the performance of the emergency rooms by approaching its organization from different angles. Using a tool, 8 axes are mapped out that influence the performance of the emergency department. In order to improve the patient flow, the patient safety as well as the patient satisfaction, recommendations are made at various levels (such as collaboration with stakeholders, adjustment of processes, staff training sessions, governance structure, etc.).

We developed a tool to evaluate the performance of the emergency department.

Personnel

Möbius assists in making the workload manageable by matching the staffing to the care needs. Current staffing levels are analyzed and optimized, considering the concept of inter-departmental cooperation allowing to better handle peak times and build in flexibility.

In addition, we focus on improving the ability of the employees by quickly, directly and periodically gaining insights into the employee satisfaction. We provide coaching on leadership in the workplace as well.

We developed a tool to gain insight into the experience of both the employees and the patients.
