Patient Flow Solutions on display at HIMSS16

After having just been named Patient Flow Category Leader for the 5th consecutive year by U.S. healthcare market research leader KLAS, we’re taking our solutions to the HIMSS16 Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas February 29 – March 4, 2016.  This is one of the largest health IT shows of the year, bringing together more than 40,000 health IT professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world.

The crowds flocking to HIMSS16 demonstrate how much the field of patient flow is evolving.  When TeleTracking started 25 years ago, the notion of patient flow  didn’t exist.  However, the idea has been steadily growing as hospitals and health systems begin understanding the important role that effective, efficient flow plays in patient experience, caregiver experience and the other factors that drive value.

 

“We have a vision and are dedicated to helping solve the $1 trillion in waste facing the US healthcare system,” says Michael Gallup, TeleTracking President. “We are pleased to deliver measurable, sustainable outcomes to the hundreds of hospitals that we serve—and that two of those hospitals will be presenting at our booth at HIMSS.”

Those hospitals are MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and Health First.  Representatives will be discussing their successes at the TeleTracking booth [#7410].

  • Alison Anderson, Data Analyst, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital – Ali Anderson is a Data Analyst on the Performance Improvement team at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and is responsible for collecting and analyzing data from the hospital’s various systems – EMR, TeleTracking, Case Management, etc. MedStar Georgetown University Hospital increased discharges by noon from 8% to 24%; increased discharge volume by 21%; and maintained or improved performance on key safety metrics, including readmissions, infection rates and fall rates.
  • Lisa Maples, Director of Centralized Patient Logistics, Health First – Lisa Maples has more than 25 years of experience in emergency department settings, and is currently leading all things related to patient flow, transfer/access center, internal staffing and aeromedical transport. Health First has improved the number of adult transfers by more than 300%, decreased mean patient length of stay by 19%, and increased total annual admissions by 27%—all without adding any inpatient beds.

TeleTracking’s patient flow experts will also be onsite to share the latest product updates and conduct demonstrations.  If you’d like to learn more about how to break the mold and have a positive impact on patients and caregivers in your community, register today for one of the offered sessions.

We hope to see you at HIMSS16!
