Software Manages Patient Itineraries for Cardiology, Transport Departments


March 14, 2011

Powered by an artificial intelligence engine, Allocade's On-Cue Expert Software System coordinates patient flow and automatically adapts to disruptions as they occur. This enables the industry’s only dynamic patient itinerary - a time-tagged list of each patient’s preparation and procedure events that adapts in real-time as conditions change.

The system can add significant improvements of up to 50 percent for keeping patients on time for procedures they are scheduled for. This helps customers meet their meaningful-use objectives, improve their Press Ganey scores and drive down operating costs.

The capabilities add more options for caregivers to offload a majority of the time-consuming work required to coordinate and manage complex patient logistics throughout the hospital. The company has adapted On-Cue for implementation into the cardiology department in the cardiac catheterization lab, electrocardiogram (ECG) and echocardiography. As a result, improvements and benefits experienced by caregivers within the radiology department will now extend to the cardiology department, increasing the potential to improve patient flow hospital-wide.

The expansion into the transport department offers a client for transport control, providing a real-time view of patient status within any procedural area managed by the system. Transport personnel can customize the interface by the type of patient or by the procedural area as they work to improve coordination of patient transports.
