While the term “command center” may conjure up images of NASA’s mission control or a highly sophisticated military operation, command centers also have a place in healthcare. Though few US hospitals or health systems are currently live with a command center, healthcare organizations have recently begun to reimagine this centralized approach to operations. The early consensus? Command centers can drive significant outcomes—including improved efficiency, increased revenue, and enhanced patient safety and satisfaction. Given these reported benefits, your organization may be wondering:

• What is a command center, and what technology/departments are typically involved?

• What specific outcomes are being achieved?

• How do the vendors differ in their approach to command centers and in their contributions to customer success?

• What best practices would organizations with live command centers recommend to their peers?

To answer these questions, KLAS asked command center vendors to point us toward their most innovative and forward-thinking customers. We then randomly interviewed three or four customers for each (24 organizations in total) to gather insights into this underutilized operational approach.
