ED Patient Flow Case Study

"With Versus, we’re able to automatically communicate when the patient’s ready to be seen by the physician, when the physician has orders and when the patient is ready for discharge. It’s been a very helpful communication tool."

Joy Cresci
Emergency Department Director

"We sometimes have 30 to 40 patients in the ED at one time. Really, I cannot even fathom keeping up with that on a grease board. Now, with Versus, information just flows automatically—and it’s up-to-date."

Hospital-Wide Case Study

“The remote floorplan provides a very important visual of the unit, especially when things are very chaotic. It is a great management tool for knowing where your resources are and redirecting when needed. Our patient satisfaction has been boosted tremendously by the 15 minute alert that a patient has not yet seen by a nurse. This assures that we always connect with every patient and address their needs and concerns.”

Kerry Skurka
Manager of ED Services

More Case Studies

According to the American Hospital Association, the top causes of poor patient flow are communications and visibility of data. Versus Advantages™ ED addresses these issues directly.

By tracking patients and caregivers with IR-RFID badges, need-to-know information is automatically communicated and visible throughout your emergency department:

  • Where patients are and how long they’ve been waiting
  • Patient acuity and special risks (e.g. infectious disease)
  • Patient status (ready to be seen, with physician, labs pending, etc.)
  • Room/bed status (available, assigned, in need of cleaning)
  • Where patients, physicians and nurses should go next
  • Where bottlenecks are causing delays
Enterprise View™
