NEW REPORT SHOWS ST. LUKE’S UNIVERSITY HEALTH NETWORK SAVES $1 MILLION PER YEAR WITH ROUNDTRIP

Roundtrip releases groundbreaking impact study revealing St. Luke’s University Health Network achieves $1 million in cost savings per year by implementing its patient transportation software. 
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Roundtrip, a leading transportation software solution for health systems and health plans, has released a groundbreaking impact study showing substantial cost savings through enhanced patient transportation efficiency. In partnership with St. Luke’s University Health Network, Roundtrip implemented its software to reduce inpatient length of stay and improve staff members’ operational efficiency. The study revealed $1 million savings annually through a 67% reduction in overnight stays due to transportation delays, along with averting the need to hire six additional communication center operators to manage the escalating volume of patient transportation requests.

The study, published on September 19, breaks down St. Luke’s initial challenges involving patient transportation scheduling and management amid rapid expansion and increasing demand for transportation services. It then highlights how Roundtrip’s solution streamlined the organization’s transportation workflow through advanced features and integrations, automating ride booking procedures. This not only enhanced workflow efficiency but also amplified cross-organizational transparency, ultimately culminating in substantial cost savings and heightened staff and patient satisfaction.
Key Highlights:
67% reduction in the number of overnight hospital stays caused by transportation: reducing delays in securing available transportation helped reduce overnight hospital stays, contributing to astronomical year-over-year cost-savings.86% reduction in communication center call volume: digitizing the ride booking process eliminated frequent calls, saved staff time, and prevented the need to hire six additional team members to manage the continually increasing demand.58% reduction in transportation ETA deviation: automated transportation vendor selection led to a boost in transportation efficiency, with a 58% reduction in the average variance between requested ride start times and actual pickup ETA.”Our collaboration with St. Luke’s University Health Network is a testament to their dedication to embracing innovation,” said Mark Switaj, CEO at Roundtrip. “Their team did an amazing job of collecting baseline data and metrics that helped us better quantify the true impact of Roundtrip on hospital operations.”
“Collaborating with Roundtrip on this endeavor has truly brought about a new era of efficiency and patient-centered care,” remarks Chad Brisendine, Chief Information Officer (CIO) at St. Luke’s University Health Network.
