Predictive Analytics Streamline Hospital Operations at Seattle Children’s
There are several Seattle Children’s Hospitals. No, you can’t physically go to these other “hospitals” for world-class pediatric care, but the organizations are helping to make Seattle Children’s more operationally efficient—cutting labor costs, preventing bottlenecks, and preventing burnout—so providers can maintain and even improve quality of care.
Seattle Children’s is leveraging a predictive analytics strategy known as digital twin simulations to test out new ideas, like opening a new location or altering an established process. The simulations, also known as discrete event simulations, ensure that any changes to hospital operations maintain the flow of a patient’s journey while ensuring efficiencies across the organization.
