We were delighted that St. Vincent selected StatCom to help with their patient flow challenges
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 26, 2008
StatCom, the leading provider of patient flow logistics and tracking solutions, announced that it has been selected to implement its enterprise solution at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center located in Toledo, Ohio, to automate patient flow processes and improve operations.
St. Vincent, a 500 bed full service hospital, is the critical care regional referral and teaching center within the Mercy Health Partners system, a seven hospital faith-based system serving Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. They are a member of Catholic Healthcare Partners (CHP) which consists of 36 hospitals. The hospital has undertaken a facility wide initiative to improve patient flow efficiencies.
"We were delighted that St. Vincent selected StatCom to help with their patient flow challenges," said Eric Morgan, president and CEO of StatCom. "They exemplify an organization that can benefit significantly from the StatCom technology. They have the drive, the initiative and the vision to truly excel. StatCom's patient flow logistics solution is an operational system that will provide the required technology foundation for St. Vincent to build on as they strive to enhance the performance of their organization. This will allow them to better serve their patients and the community. We are pleased to have the opportunity to assist them."
"We see technology as a key to helping us accomplish our operational and patient care goals," said Michael McEachern, president and CEO of St. Vincent. "StatCom can help us change from an organization that's vertically oriented and excels in departmental performance, to one that has horizontal processes which will significantly improve performance across the board and ultimately improve the patient experience. Incorporating StatCom as part of our improvement effort represents a paradigm shift with the goal of achieving an industry leading performance."
By incorporating the StatCom enterprise solution across the facility, St. Vincent will be able to manage patient location information and determine room status in real time rather than making phone calls or manual room checks. The StatCom system provides patient information to physicians, staff and family as to the location and status of the patient's progression throughout the care process. As a result, StatCom complements hospital information and scheduling systems for instant communication, patient and resource tracking, and automated patient flow. This will enable hospital staff to anticipate demand and manage departmental handoffs and bottlenecks more effectively.
