Healthcare in America is at a crossroads. Patient populations are increasing while staffing and physical resources remain relatively unchanged. It is imperative that hospitals more efficiently handle patient flow, or we will be unable to care for the mounting numbers of people entering hospitals nationwide.
Central Logic is invested in establishing cost effective and patient-centric solutions for the healthcare industry. We support students as they research and meaningfully contribute to healthcare improvement initiatives worldwide. In a continued effort to foster growth and opportunities for students, Central Logic sponsors the “Healthcare Innovators” Patient Flow Scholarship.
Scholarship applicants should be graduate students enrolled in Healthcare Administration or Public Health programs at CAHME accredited universities. To apply for the scholarship, please provide a *copy of your undergraduate and graduate transcript, as well as your response to ONE of the following questions (1,000-1,500 words):
How can efficient hospital-wide patient flow increase positive patient care outcomes?
What strategies are hospitals using to enhance patient flow? Explain which efforts are most and/or least effective.
One $3,000 and one $1,500 scholarship will be awarded. Additionally, the winning students will be offered complimentary registration, lodging, and travel expenses to attend the 2013 Patient Flow Summit in Las Vegas, April 29–May 2.
