Just-in-time Decision Support for Improving and Optimising Professional Practices

  1. 1. Optimizing the Use of Hospital Resources through Real-world, Real-time Information Systems Prof. Antoine Geissbühler, MD Geneva University Hospitals
  2. 2. Geneva University Hospitals • 2'200 beds • 3 campuses, 30 smaller sites • Primary, secondary and tertiary care • 50'000 admissions/year • 800'000 outpatient visits/year • 10'000 collaborators • 1‘500 physicians • 3'500 nurses

  6. 6. From documentation to coordination
  7. 7. Collaborative care: clinical pathways
  8. 8. Shorter feedback loops Resources Processes Results People Interventions Costs Equipment Medications LOS Space Tests Satisfaction Care Outcome Evaluation, feedback
