Medhost has launched OpCenter — executive decision-support solutions that provide real time information on incoming admissions, patient acuity and hospital bed saturation levels. According to Medhost, much of the backlog in the ED is not related to ED patient flow, but is caused by systemic issues that delay moving patients from the ED to inpatient floors. With 60 percent of admits coming from the ED, these in-house delays can drive up ED wait times and ultimately lead to decreased patient satisfaction.
Medhost leveraged Microsoft Silverlight technology to create OpCenter’s user experience. OpCenter pulls data from Medhost’s ED system and integrates with other hospital systems.
OpCenter features include:
- Automatic Mobile Alerts — Automatic notifications when thresholds are exceeded so that the right people get critical information on their mobile devices;
- Bed Ahead — Manage the admission process by giving inpatient caregivers advance notice of pending and possible admissions;
- House Census — At-a-glance status of hospital bed availability, pending discharges, and departmental saturation.
