Evidence shows that despite reforms, emergency department volume has actually increased. That’s all the more reason we need to improve patient flow throughout the health system: from patient access to patient discharge and every step in between. TeleTracking’s patient throughput solutions can help your organization optimize workflow, provide more timely care, decrease overall length of stay, while serving a larger patient population.
Optimizing patient flow through your hospitals and creating real-time visibility to bottlenecks prevents overcrowding and long wait times in the Emergency Department, which is often the root cause for patients leaving before they are seen by a caregiver.
Strategically managing the patient discharge process and bringing visibility to discharge performance provides care management and patient placement teams with the information they need to drive more timely discharges, which ultimately decreases patient length of stay and improves hospital capacity.
