Care Traffic Control Certified Hospital Command Center Criteria

Ready to have your accomplishments recognized? Ready to collaborate with your peers?

Here are the criteria to get started:

  • A centralized patient access and placement process for the hospital if you’re a single facility or the main campus, plus one additional facility at a minimum, if you’re a multi-facility enterprise.
  • A way to demonstrate visibility for incoming demand—and ways to track existing and projected capacity.
  • A process for collecting and tracking data on performance metrics and adhering to best practices.
  • A process for patient flow governance—such as a cross-departmental patient flow council that meets regularly.
  • And finally, a willingness to show your pride and appear on a public list of Care Traffic Control Certified™ centers.

With 100+ health system command centers in the US and UK, we understand the heavy lifting needed to build and sustain a command center for your growing health system. Our new program gives you the opportunity to become Care Traffic Control Certified™ as a way of recognizing not only your hard work, but also your Hospital Command Center outcomes and achievements. 


“We encourage you to join this collaborative of peers to keep the momentum strong in Health System Command Center operations, create the most advanced centers to drive excellence in patient care and continue innovation in this new industry segment.”

- Chris Johnson, TeleTracking President.
