Advisory Board Case Study: Building a Prescriptive Analytics Model

How Jewish General Hospital Improved Patient Access, Costs, and Quality of Care

Jewish General Hospital (JGH) faced severe financial pressures due to increased numbers of incoming patients and new budget constraints. Hospital administrators decided to use a computer model of the hospital to identify areas where they could address the facility's budget and capacity issues, without compromising exceptional quality of care. This case study describes how JGH's leaders used the model to map resource consumption, what they learned from the process, and how they plan to use this strategy again.
