FierceHealthcare reports that a “new workflow optimization system piloted at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center clinic could significantly benefit both doctors and patients, according to a study published in the Physician Leadership Journal.”

“Under the system, the clinic’s daily patient volume is up 31.4 percent, and for the first seven months of the year, when the clinic is typically busiest, doctors were able to see 10 patients a day, double their existing average, according to the study.

”Meanwhile, patients who made follow-up calls to the clinic about unresolved problems within 30 days of their visits fell from 34 to 22 percent, while patients who required emergency care after their visit fell from 9.9 percent to 7.9 percent.”
