The End of ED Overcrowding?
◊ At US hospitals, approximately 2 percent of ED patients leave without treatment (LWOT)
◊ On average, hospitals endure eight diversion hours each day.
◊ Just by eliminating LWOT and diversion hours, the average hospital could bring in an additional $5 million per year.
Studies have shown that overcrowding in Emergency Departments just continues to get worse. That’s why it’s more important than ever for ED’s nationwide to tackle inefficiency head on. VIZZIA‘s ED Workflow Improvement system helps hospitals streamline patient throughput and significantly reduce LWOT and diversion hours.
Efficiency. Quality. Care.
VIZZIA utilizes real-time location systems (RTLS) to help hospitals streamline ED patient throughput. By gathering data about staff workflow and key patient/clinician interactions, VIZZIA can identify logjams and work with hospital managers to adjust processes accordingly. Benefits of RTLS in ED workflow improvement include:
- Reduce incidence of left-without-treatment (LWOT)
- Reduce average patient length-of-stay
- Decrease diversion hours
- Improve staff safety with automatic log of patient interactions
- Increase ED patient satisfaction
- Substantially decrease patient wait times
How Does It Work?
VIZZIA offers a variety of technology options, each of which provides unique benefits for different facilities’ needs. Each system employs a different tracking mechanism, but all RTLS infrastructures function similarly. Learn more about how RTLS streamlines the Emergency Department.
