Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 15, 2015
TeleTracking Technologies, Inc., and Smart Facility Software™ will be unveiling improvements to the companies’ joint integrated environmental services solutions at the Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE) annual conference, September 20-23, in Grapevine, Texas.
TeleTracking first addressed hospital bed turnover nearly twenty-five years ago with its BedTracking® application, now the standard for automated bed turnover solutions. Since then, TeleTracking has grown to become the leader of patient flow automation solutions for the healthcare industry. Despite TeleTracking’s bed turnover solutions, hospitals continue to deal with the challenges created by the housekeeping department’s other responsibilities. Partnering with Smart Facility Software enables TeleTracking to offer integrated environmental services solutions that solve those issues.
Smart Facility Software provides robust scheduling capabilities for a hospital housekeeping staff’s daily and routine cleaning activities. By integrating the strongest capabilities of BedTracking® with Smart Facility Software Census Based Scheduling (CBS), the companies’ integrated environmental services solutions let hospital employees use census data to calculate employee work load quotas and generate the following benefits:
- Comprehensive work load capacity is automatically calculated so housekeeping receives balanced assignments for both daily and discharge cleans.
- Combined workload is automatically adjusted to maximize capacity as conditions evolve — enabling staff to achieve both discharge cleaning and daily cleaning goals.
- Additional dirty beds are redirected to an available employee once that employee’s dirty bed quota has been met, or, alternatively, a supervisor is notified.
“We know that there are hundreds of hospitals that use both systems and that will benefit from the integration and information sharing,” says Jason Harber, VP, Product Management, TeleTracking. Hospitals that are using TeleTracking’s BedTracking® application version 3.2 and Smart Facility Software’s cloud based version of CBS can take advantage of this integration.
Tom Perry, Sr. Technical Product Manager for TeleTracking, will be available to answer any questions at the TeleTracking booth #723, and Phil Lee, Principal of Smart Facility Software, will be at the Smart Facility Software booth #213. TeleTracking customers may also contact their Client Success Manager to learn more about the benefits of this integrated approach.
