In a typical hospital, 60% of the budget is for human resources, of which over half is Nurses’ salaries. Thus, every hospital needs to make sure their time is spent on the core activities.

Example of SKAnalysis Case

Appropriate number and mix of nursing staff and fluent nursing tasks are essential for good patient outcomes and productivity in future hospitals. SKAnalysis is an excellent system to track nurse presence and shows what needs to be changed.

Two-week nurse flow analysis

Impact analysis on the implemented changes

THE METHOD

It is all based on thorough research and testing in real life situations over 10 years. The development was funded by Finnish funding agency for Innovation, Tekes. In 2016, we also applied a patent for the method.

How do we do it?

For the actual analysis, we will track smart phones (or other similar devices) carried by the nurses. This produces us enough data for the flow analysis. Based on the analysis, we can easily see where most of the time was spent, can pinpoint bottlenecks and suggest work method as well as layout changes for various hospital functions. The effectiveness of the implemented changes can then be seen in the analysis.

A typical set-up is a two-week follow-up for two shifts. That is enough for statistically highly significant results, and shows also patterns that are specific for morning and evening shifts, as well as differences between different week-days.

“We want to do as much work with the patients as possible, and now – for the first time ever – there is a possibility to make their work visible and to really pinpoint bottlenecks and process difficulties.”
