ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QGenda, the leading innovator in provider operations and healthcare workforce management, announced an enhanced solution for managing exam rooms and clinical capacity: QGenda Capacity. The new operational and analytics platform gives ambulatory organizations visibility into provider and room utilization, reusable space, and open time in advance. This allows organizations to take proactive action to adjust provider schedules, increase utilization, and optimize capacity.
“After a 2020 Porter Research study found that over 75% of health systems lack accurate visibility into exam room utilization and lose out on significant unrealized revenue as a result, we knew QGenda was uniquely positioned to help solve this challenge,” said Greg Benoit, CEO of QGenda.
To put that unrealized revenue in perspective, a health system of 100 exam rooms can increase their annual revenue by $250,000 from simply a 1% increase in exam room utilization.
At its core, QGenda Capacity provides a central source of truth for better exam room management. As part of the ProviderCloud® platform, the solution builds on the foundation of accurate provider schedule data and can connect enterprise exam room data across the entire health system. By standardizing exam room management this way, the solution enables departments and divisions to share and further optimize clinical space, rather than manage rooms in silos.
QGenda Capacity is the only solution that directly leverages native, real-time provider schedules to give healthcare organizations true transparency into room assignments and availability. This helps streamline the room request process, including automatically releasing previously assigned rooms when schedule changes occur. As a result, clinical organizations eliminate manual, error-prone processes and ultimately gain access to reliable room utilization data.
The clinical capacity solution can also integrate with organizations’ EHR system to overlay patient encounters on the provider schedule alongside room assignments. This helps to more easily identify opportunities to improve room and provider utilization.
“By connecting provider schedules, room assignments, and patient encounter information, QGenda Capacity can analyze the data together to report on future and historical utilization trends,” said Lindsey Klein, Chief Strategy Officer of QGenda. “As a result, clinical organizations gain visibility into reusable space and open time far in advance, allowing them to get ahead of the problem more effectively than the reactive analysis many organizations have in place today. This helps organizations assign rooms to the providers who need them most with enough time to schedule additional patients and increase revenue.”
“QGenda Capacity helps health systems answer questions like: Are we making the best use of our clinical resources? Which providers need additional or fewer exam rooms during their clinical sessions? Where and when should we give new providers their clinical time? Do we truly need to expand and add more exam rooms, or can we reallocate our space more productively?” said Benoit. “With the insight to inform these questions, we can empower data-driven decisions on clinical resource allocation and optimize capacity, ultimately driving throughput, patient and provider satisfaction, and revenue.”
