The Patient Access Challenge

The first hurdle is getting patients through the door when they need care.


 

Our patient access solutions are designed to directly and quickly impact system growth and cost management. Documented outcomes tell the story of efficiencies, savings and improved patient access to care being realized. As impressive as these numbers are, our most valued outcome is removing barriers and delays between patients and clinicians, expanding the capacity of care. 

The care continuum begins the moment a patient, their family or their physician chooses where to receive care. If patients can't get in the door, they can't receive the care they need.

  • Do transfers occur in a timely manner with only one phone call?
  • Can patients self-schedule and notify urgent care before they leave their home?
  • Do you have a centralized patient flow command center bringing transparency to your entire hospital system?
  • Are you able to seamlessly coordinate and automate transportation and emergency services for the placement of outside referrals?

If you can't answer yes to the questions posed above, we can help.

Patient Access Outcomes

Think you are at capacity? You might be wrong.

TeleTracking Patient Access solutions bring transparency, communication and real-time visibility to your entire hospital enterprise system.

Saying no to incoming patients means lost revenue for your system, patients waiting longer, families traveling farther, and decreased community satisfaction. Prior to opening their health system patient flow command center powered by TeleTracking, one customer saw varied monthly patient transfers, anywhere from 6 to 44 patients. In the first full month after go-live, 100 patient transfers were accepted. 

Through our patient access, patient throughput, patient discharge and reporting solutions, your health system gains insight into bottlenecks and the foresight to plan for them. Just nine months after opening a centralized operational command center, one health system reduced the number of incoming transfer requests they sent to competitors from 80% to 40%. Another saw a transfer volume increase of 30%, while another brought their patient transfer acceptance rate to 99%.


Patients shouldn't need to be patient. We can help you improve patient access to care now.
