"The vast amounts of data we've amassed over the past few years on how our nurses work has become a wealth of information for predictive analytics," said Ms. Simmons of Celebration Health. "The data has debunked long-standing industry best practices about staffing and is uncovering numerous ways we can improve productivity.  It is proving beneficial to the nursing team and staff, providing them with a better understanding of their own work patterns throughout their shift. The data has even influenced the design of our most recently opened unit. We're eager to share our findings and spread the benefits to the broader industry."
