Philips Blue Jay Consulting specializes in organizational and emergency department throughput and performance optimization implementation. We assist organizations who require implementation assistance in order to achieve sustainable results. Our firm excels in results-oriented solution implementations. Our philosophy is centered on employee and leadership involvement in performance optimization. Many organizations have barriers to optimal performance, impeding patient and process flow. These barriers manifest themselves in workarounds, unnecessary tasks and steps, inadequate supplies and equipment and untrained or unavailable staff. At times, Philips Blue Jay Consultants provide interim leadership to our clients.
Using the same IMPROVE methodology used to improve ED throughput, Blue Jay Consulting helps organizations improve acute care bed capacity by improving the bed control process, improving access, creating a “pull” culture, improving the discharge process and refocusing appropriate resources.
