Clinical Operations & Workflow

In high-acuity departments such as the OR and ED and in Outpatient clinics, knowing the real-time location and status of clinical staff, patients, rooms and critical clinical equipment is essential to improving patient care and departmental workflow. Lack of such visibility can slow patient throughput—adversely affecting quality of care and outcomes, as well as financial stability and staff satisfaction.

Solution Overview

STANLEY Healthcare’s AeroScout® Patient Flow and AeroScout® Staff Workflow solutions provide hospital- and clinic-wide visibility to improve patient satisfaction and operational efficiency. By monitoring the status and location of people and resources, these solutions provide data for real-time enterprise awareness and robust business intelligence to measure performance, identify trends and pinpoint opportunities for process improvement.
