A VALUED RESOURCE FOR HOSPITAL ADMINISTRATORS
VPS is the Only Way to Truly Benchmark Your PICU’s Performance as a Fundamental
Requirement for Quality Improvement and Improved Patient Care
Quality Patient Care
Reports from VPS can help justify increasing investment in PICU care and lead to referral growth, from both internal increased post-surgical admissions as well as non-elective referrals from regional Emergency Departments and Pediatric Inpatient Units.
Planning & Performance
Compare your PICU to reference groups that have similar programs and unit size to your PICU. Improve effectiveness of existing resources leading to an enhanced financial position and increased fiscal responsibility.
THE VPS DIFFERENCE
Data Elements Covering the Complete Continuum of Care from PICU Admission Through PICU Discharge
How Hospitals Leverage VPS
Children’s Wisconsin used VPS data to build a visual simulation model revealing a barrier to patient care for and PICU care between 3p-6p. This obstruction delayed provider access to patients and PICU care. Rather than adding costly new PICU beds, they launched a critical care nurse practitioners’ program and enhanced the nursing staff by 10%. This resulted in improved patient flow, timely and efficient care and saved the hospital significant unnecessary building costs.
Akron Children’s Hospital has followed trends in quarterly bed and 24h turnover as PICUs have been used to extend emergency triage. This data impacts staffing models to place the right team around the right patient.
