Fast deployment of real time patient flow projects in hospitals
Real time patient flow solutions help hospitals to boost teams' coordination in key demanding areas such as the surgical block or the emergency department. This, in turn, is translated in an increase of capacity in these units. Today, this is more important than ever because waiting lists have surpassed all records to date. Even though the pandemic is much more under control, hospitals now have to change track from COVID care/vaccination mode to achieve maximum care capacity, despite having exhausted staff. PATHMAKER is designing a solution to enable the fast deployment of real time patient flow projects to empower professionals in the pursuit of achieving the maximum capacity to cope with waiting lists.
Waiting lists have surpassed all records to date. Even though the pandemic is much more under control, hospitals now have to change track from COVID care/vaccination mode to achieve maximum care capacity, despite having exhausted staff. At the same time, the pandemic has uncovered another problem, hospitals are still reactive and fragmented organisations. Professionals and specialised companies such as MYSPHERA need significant time and effort to plan elective care backlog and to establish new care pathways when improvement is needed, or eventualities occur in a context of constant increase of healthcare demand and limited budgets. Therefore, it is vital that hospitals have the means to swiftly streamline seamless care pathways and quickly plan elective care activity, while optimising capacity and becoming more responsive organisations, not just for one department but by integrating the whole patient pathway between them (i.e., emergency dpt., surgery, ICU, outpatient clinic, etc). PATHMAKER aims to design a tool that will enable the fast deployment of real time patient flow projects, which are very important to have an optimal management of any healthcare process/area (i.e., surgical process, emergency department, etc) and patient pathways. Currently, deploying these kinds of solutions take few months of co-design work with the hospital, which limits the scale-up potential. MYSPHERA is determined to reduce the effort and time significantly by implementing an AI-Powered Assistive Design IoT Pathway Platform that will streamline the design, tailor and deploy optimal pathways, for any hospital, unit, and in a much shorter time seen to date.
