Facility design is an imperative lever to improve the quality and effectiveness of care delivery. If sub-optimal workflow patterns are incorporated into newly designed spaces, the opportunity is often lost. Discover how ED design simulation enabled JFK Medical Center to build in ways to improve care pathways, increase efficiency, and control costs by combining workflow optimization, simulation modeling and facility design. As a result, the GE Performance Solutions team was able to validate the core workflow functionality of the new space; identify a construction savings opportunity of $1.48 million; and enable 25% volume growth through process, technology, and staffing changes.
