In the News: Patient Flow Software to be Implemented at UCLH
A major London teaching hospital trust is implementing a technology solution to better manage the admission, discharge and transfer of patients.
Staff at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) will use software from TeleTracking Technologies. The company’s Command Centre and IT Operations Platform will provide real-time visibility of patients around the hospital, highlighting those ready to be moved from an acute care setting. It will also track the location of equipment.
Lorraine Walton, operations manager at University College Hospital said: “This means we can reduce delays in patient care and prevent cancellations of procedures at short notice. Also, by being able to track equipment, we will help ward staff to find what they need to care for patients without delay.”
The appointment of TeleTracking forms part of UCLH’s digital strategy, which has also seen Atos selected as foundational IT partner and Epic as the preferred supplied for the trust’s electronic health record system.
