Forecast Impact on Care Delivery Capacity

Capacity Planning Tool

Forecast your local COVID-19 demand in the context of your system capacity, supplies, and staffing—and the subsequent impact of infection rates on care delivery capacity—to set expectations and inform mitigation strategy:

  • Built on the outstanding Penn Med epidemic model—with additional features.
  • Forecast infections based upon actual county level data and dynamic infection spread rates (Empirical Model).
  • Easily manage multiple scenarios.
  • Overlay demand forecasts on your capacity (beds and ventilators).
  • Compare model estimates to actuals.
  • Estimate demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) and staff.
  • Export assumptions and results for further use.

The COVID-19 Capacity Planning Tool is an epidemiologic approach to capacity management based on modeling the outbreak in local communities—and the subsequent impact of infection rates on the healthcare systems’ ability to respond in terms of beds, ventilators, staff, PPE, etc.—all designed to fit within the decision flow of hospital leaders, operators, and analysts.

Quickly Recover Revenue and Accelerate Cash

Financial Impact Recovery: Revenue Cycle Launch New

Offset the impact of COVID-19 on revenue—begin to strategically recover revenue while focusing on patient billing accuracy:

  • Create actionable worklists to capture revenue and accelerate cash flow by focusing on basic operational gaps (missing/late ambulatory charges, high-dollar aged accounts receivable, point-of-service collections)
  • Track the financial impact of uninsured COVID-19 encounters
  • Hold payers accountable to COVID-19 reimbursement changes, such as reduced patient responsibility and increased reimbursement

The pressure of COVID-19 has amplified the need for visibility into revenue capture and cash acceleration. The Revenue Launch application provides targeted insights for revenue cycle operations and enables analysts to create patient-level worklists focused on the greatest opportunity for revenue recovery. Revenue cycle leadership can monitor opportunities and track progress of revenue recovery over time.

Resume Patient Access to Ambulatory Care

  • Gain visibility into outpatient visit trends by volume, revenue, department, visit type, and more to help plan recovery.
  • Track volume of telehealth visits relative to all visits to monitor shifts in delivery.
  • Use scenario planning to assess the impact of scheduling changes, payment assumptions, visit type mix, and more on providers and patients.

The Ambulatory application helps healthcare systems recover from the provider and patient toll and the revenue loss of COVID-19 outpatient visit cancellations. At a glance, you can identify ambulatory care that will keep providers and patients safe and drive revenue. In-app tracking enables you to monitor your progress as your providers treat the backlog of patients and recover lost revenue.

Effectively Resume Elective Surgeries

Financial Impact Recovery: Elective Surgery

Understand the financial, provider, and patient impact of COVID-19-related declines in elective surgeries; prioritize surgeries based on provider and patient safety, financial impact, and provider availability to deliver the care patients need:

  • Gain visibility into procedure trends by revenue, department, location, and more to help plan recovery.
  • Use scenario planning to assess capacity and financial impact.

The Elective Surgery application helps healthcare systems recover from the provider and patient toll and the revenue loss of COVID-19 surgery cancellations. At a glance, you can prioritize surgeries that will keep providers and patients safe and drive revenue. In-app tracking enables you to monitor your progress on the road to treating the backlog of patients and recovering lost revenue.
