Developed in Partnership with:
RTDC Advisors, in partnership with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) has developed the gold standard for real time demand-capacity matching, a critical component for effective hospital throughput, which unlocks 20-30% more hospital capacity without increasing staff or beds
Our Proprietary Methodology
HOW IT WORKS
Six modules along with a simulation of a hospital environment, enabling staff to learn key concepts, science and our proprietary methodology at their convenience, on demand.
Set up and Implementation
We will support the set up and implementation of our methodology within your organization. We will also leverage and optimize your existing technology and ensure that our methodology is incorporated into it. We have worked with Epic, Cerner, Teletracking, etc and can guide you on how to best use these technologies to optimize throughput.
Live Expert Feedback

RTDC brings together experts in the industry to deliver a best-in-class solution
At RTDC Advisors, we understand the challenge of throughput. Our experts have spent over 15 years developing and iterating on a solution for throughput in collaboration with the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI). Drawing upon principles from Queueing theory and compression wave theory, our team developed the real time demand capacity management process that forms the foundation for managing patient throughput
Our experienced team can deploy the process within a week regardless of your hospital size. Our proprietary model is simple to implement and does not impact physician workflow.
