Ensure your patients receive the right care, at the right time, in the right location.
Bed and Capacity Management Systems are an important part of NHS England’s Urgent and Delivery Care Plan. Poor visibility into available capacity and patient status, along with delays in discharging patients is continuing to cause a widespread strain on resources and long waits in A&E for many trusts.
Altera Patient Flow™ offers a suite of solutions for bed management, housekeeping and transport operations to maximise patient throughput and communication, while increasing overall efficiency and resource utilisation. What sets our solution apart is its unique capability to seamlessly integrate with any EPR, delivering a flexible, interoperable solution for seamless data sharing and communication across your ICS.
Altera Patient Flow enables users to:
Avoid A&E bottlenecks, delays, and overcrowding
Decompresses the A&E department by improving inpatient flow through increased visibility and better management of discharges and internal transfers.
Reduce cold beds or housekeeping delays
Automates notifications to housekeeping, eliminating delays experienced when relying on admission, discharge, transfer notifications manual processes.
Support proactive approach to patient flow
Expedites patient throughput to enable fast patient discharge by providing real-time insight into bed status, bed availability and patient movement.
“It was a very easy transition because we already had the clinical aspect of the system with Sunrise™. The main reason we added in Patient Flow was so we could integrate under one platform and combine clinical features with admission and scheduling.”
