Knowing the occupancy of a unit and the timing for patient admissions is key to appropriately providing patient care. Understanding the patient’s flow during their stay can also help you investigate how to improve patient care, work-flows and policies. The Patient Locator applications provides you two views to patient location information. First you can use the application to investigate unit-specific levels at every hour of the day as well as admissions totals by provider for each hour. Second, you can use the Patient Locator application to track the patient’s location throughout their hospital stay. This application can help optimize your patient tracking and processing of patients through your inpatient units.
Nurses spend more time with patients than do any other healthcare providers. Therefore, improvements in patient safety can be achieved by improving nurse performance.
