Since its beginning, TeleTracking patient flow optimization and automation has been converting time into space to help hospitals better utilize their existing capacity.

We were first to define patient flow as a continuum, rather than random actions, and continually analyze it to better understand its components.

As a result, we’ve grown from a single bed management application to an entire suite of solutions which address virtually every point identified thus far along that continuum. In the process, we and our clients also recognized that our computerized system yields a wealth of practical data which could be applied to not only operational improvement, but business development as well.

Our full complement of solutions now addresses patient throughput and overcrowding, asset management, and inter-hospital patient transfer.

Many of these are integrated into our , which combines bed efficiency, transport efficiency, the and placement technology. , our RTLS offering, uses a sensor network to track and sense the status of equipment. Our application not only expedites referrals, but produces vital data about referral patterns, new service opportunities and other marketing information.

Separately and collectively, they can enhance efficiency, save cost and generate revenue, all critical benefits in an era of healthcare reform. Most importantly, however, they ensure that the patient gets to the right place at the right time with the right resources for optimal care.
