Hospitals typically plan and allocate labor from a siloed, department focused perspective. This approach, however, does not align with the system perspective of patient movement through a hospital. This disconnect results in a breakdown of system feedback loops concerning labor planning and allocation resulting in sub-optimized results. A systemic, centralized approach to labor planning and allocation can re-engage the systemic feedback loops to provide better-managed labor for the benefit of the hospital service line systems.
