Efficiency Increase

ORSOFT GmbH has more than 25 years of experience in improving value chains. ORSOFT analyzes the state of planning in hospitals with regard to their business effectiveness and derives proposals for profitability improvement.

There are the following four key areas in the range of services:

1. Comparison of billed cases retrospectively with coding of patients (DRG) specifications

The methodological advantage of ORSOFT's approach is that well-founded recommendations for action are derived in the direction of planning improvements (there is sufficient capacity available in the service units, but this is insufficiently planned) or in the direction of structural improvements (the deficits in the profitability of past cases are due to the competing environment and can only be remedied by increasing capacity). The focus of the analysis is on the case and the associated DRG; the analysis is carried out across service units and the environment.

2. Utilization situation with regard to beds and service positions

An analysis is carried out in order to gain suggestions for structural changes with the aim of shortening the throughput time. On the one hand, it is examined whether capacity reductions of certain service units are possible without disadvantages for profitability (competition). On the other hand, the past situation can be simulatively rescheduled with the shortest treatment pattern in each case in order to determine the potential that can actually be exhausted.

The focus of consideration is on the service points that are necessary for different cases.

3. Computer-assisted "copy templates"

With the help of evaluated past cases, so-called treatment patterns, according to which planned cases can be created in the future, are created in a one-time action. This service enables a better planning in the future.

4. Prospective support

Operational planning is supported prospectively by software, which permanently demonstrates the business consequences of a planning action and thus leads to a business optimization in the planning and control process, which is supported by all participants.
