High-quality patient care through optimized workflows 

Lusíadas Saúde, Portugal

Lusíadas Saúde is the third largest private healthcare provider in Portugal. It has 11 facilities (6 hospitals and 5 clinics) and continues to expand across the country. The organization prioritizes excellence in care to provide the best experience possible to its patients.

Lusíadas Saúde first partnered with Siemens Healthineers in two sites in northern Portugal for a patient experience pilot project focused on cardiology. The program evaluated the whole patient journey in detail and redesigned the care pathway strategies to ensure the best patient experience. Siemens Healthineers examined the organization’s processes, including workflow analysis, key performance indicator selection and measurements, staff and patient surveys, and the evaluation and implementation of improvement measures.
