The benefit of this approach is that hospital staff can get a quick glimpse of how StatCom would work in their environment, and they can explore how it improves patient handoffs and communication between areas
ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) December 8, 2006
StatCom, the innovative leader in patient flow logistics and tracking software, today announced the launch of its dynamic new website which demonstrates how its solution improves patient throughput and capacity management in hospitals. This unique healthcare IT solution provides an immediate and comprehensive view of the entire patient flow process with real-time tools to manage that flow within and between departments.
"StatCom's technology represents a giant step forward in managing the patient flow process. It's the first solution of its kind, and this website reflects not only its innovative technology, but also how it truly impacts the patient's experience," said Eric Morgan, president and CEO of StatCom. "StatCom was designed specifically to improve team performance and communication, and this site demonstrates that focus in a way that hospital administrators, staff and executives can understand."
When visitors go to the StatCom homepage at http://www.statcom.com, they are prompted to "click on the ambulance" to enter the interactive experience. From there a navigation wheel opens which represents all the areas of the hospital that StatCom touches. The user can click on the center to start from the beginning or click on one of the areas to enter. From the beginning and in each area the animated sequence describes a patient's (John Smith) journey as he progresses from the emergency department to his room, to the cath lab, and on to discharge on his fifth day. The animation sequences are based on actual hospital operations and procedures with information and hot spots that describe how StatCom improves communications and handoffs during the patient journey.
"The benefit of this approach is that hospital staff can get a quick glimpse of how StatCom would work in their environment, and they can explore how it improves patient handoffs and communication between areas," said Ben Sawyer, executive VP, market and client development for StatCom. "Studies have shown that the majority of mistakes occur during handoffs because of communication problems. StatCom closes the gap between vertical operational silos, significantly reducing the chance for such errors."
