Case Study: Fraser Health Authority – 1,400 beds saved annually with Pathways and IQ
As one of Canada’s largest and fastest growing health authorities, Fraser Health (FHA) provides a wide range of integrated health care services to more than 1.5 million people living in communities stretching from Burnaby to White Rock to Hope in British Columbia. With FHA’s population expected to grow by 27% by 2020, acute and community resources are under constant strain. A long-standing priority has been to optimize the timely access to community beds from acute care, helping to alleviate hospital flow issues. Fraser Health has been using Strata PathWaysTM since March 2007. Fraser Health implemented Strata IQ’s business analytics module as a clinical partner in 2010, and has been at the forefront of leveraging the rich set of patient flow data created by Strata PathWaysTM for the purpose of frontline daily decision support and long term executive strategic planning.
