Calculate Your Discharge Opportunity

Using our Simple Calculator

Calculate how much 'virtual capacity' you can create at your hospital by reducing length of stay (LOS). For most organisations, reducing average length of stay by a day is the equivalent of building at least an additional ward, at a fraction of the cost.

This tool allows you to calculate both the potential size of your virtual capacity opportunity—the number of “new” beds that can be added through length of stay reduction—as well as the length of stay reduction required to achieve a specific virtual capacity goal.

Virtual Capacity is a Significant Opportunity

The chart details the potential capacity gains available to hospitals of various sizes by capitalising on virtual capacity opportunities.

For hospitals of all sizes, even small reductions in average length of stay can result in the creation of significant bed capacity.
