With Intake Logistics powering our central intake hub, we are able to most effectively assess patient clinical needs upfront and ensure that we have the right people and resources in place to provide consistently exceptional care.
Albany, NY (PRWEB) November 25, 2013
St. Peter’s Hospital announced that it has adopted Intake Logistics software from Care Logistics to power its innovative central intake hub for patient transfers and admissions. The hub helps St. Peter’s best assess patient needs at intake and admit patients based on the most appropriate levels of care.
St. Peter’s adopted a centralized intake model to simultaneously process high volumes of transfer requests, prioritize demand and best assess patient cases. St. Peter’s worked with established partner Care Logistics to develop Intake Logistics software for the hub to better process, manage and track admission and transfer requests from other facilities, hospitals and doctors.
“Because the community recognizes St. Peter’s as an exceptional care facility, demand for patient admissions is high,” said Ann Errichetti, CEO of St. Peter’s Hospital. “With Intake Logistics powering our central intake hub, we are able to most effectively assess patient clinical needs upfront and ensure that we have the right people and resources in place to provide consistently exceptional care.”
The central hub and Intake Logistics software help St. Peter’s:
- Accommodate high demand for the quality treatment St. Peter’s provides while delivering the best care
- Admit patients at the right level of care promptly, with total visibility for patients, doctors and nurses
- Make physicians happier with better communications and eliminating multiple calls to admit patients
- Process all admissions requests the same way in one place to accurately and consistently assess patient medical needs
- Orchestrate fast, appropriate patient admission and bed placement
- Secure all required resources before patient arrival to minimize admission and care delays
- Flag likely or actual readmissions early so caregivers can tailor patient care plans accordingly
- Record all events and communications from processing admissions for audit
Errichetti also noted that the integration of Intake Logistics with the Care Logistics Hospital Operating System allows St. Peter’s to provide the best, most timely and responsive care from intake through discharge for all patients, while maximizing throughput.
“St. Peter’s Hospital has been a terrific partner in expanding the benefits of the logistical control system for patient throughput to include centralized intake,” said Karl Straub, president of Care Logistics. “By merging intake efficiency with a complete logistical system for orchestrating patient placement, movement and care, St. Peter’s stands to sustain breakthrough gains in care quality and throughput.”
