The New York-based Mount Sinai Hospital signed a multi-year agreement with Waukesha, Wis.-based GE Healthcare to provide change management consulting and technology to improve several processes at the hospital.

GE Healthcare experts in lean process management will work with Mount Sinai staff and utilize GE Healthcare’s workflow and visualization system to track and optimize critical patient care pathways, says the company. This will enable hospital staff and administration to visualize problems and develop solutions, it claims.

Mount Sinai and GE will gather real-time data on clinical workflow patterns throughout the 1,171-bed tertiary-care hospital to reveal process bottlenecks and identify areas of improvement that will help streamline patient flow, improve operational efficiency, and decrease patient length of stay, according to the company.

Founded in 1852, Mount Sinai is a teaching facility that is part of the Mount Sinai Medical Center along with the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
