Patient Journey

A large hospital complex has numerous departments on several hundred thousand square meters on which many patients are located. Keeping an overview of a patient’s movement within the facility from their in-time until their discharge can be a difficult and tedious task for the staff.

Smart patient tracking gives greater visibility into each patient’s location, improves patient safety, helps to identify the gaps in internal hospital processes and find ways to cover these gaps.

 

Features & Benefits

  • CORE Enterprise Solutions Platform is highly configurable, from adding photos of the staff to icons for tracking on maps, knowing which policy/alert the staff has been associated with etc. This makes it easy for all users of the software to access asset information when they need it from wherever they may be working from. Patient tracking can benefit healthcare facilities in many ways:
