TeleTracking Helps University of Utah Hospital Increase Referrals

Despite being a major regional trauma referral center for Utah and 7 surrounding states, staff managed bed assignments at the hospital with a typewriter, patient cards and a slotted bed board. The common perception was that it was filled to capacity 24/7. Replacing the center’s existing transfer system with TeleTracking’s TransferCenter™ and centralizing all placement functions within it, gave staff new control over patient bed assignments and visibility of all available bed capacity. The change has instigated a 90% reduction in diversions and $19.7 million in additional annual revenue.
