Minimize the delays and bottlenecks that cause overcrowding, hinder quality care and harm the patient experience.
AiRISTA sofia software platform with Patient Flow Manager provides an easy-to-use view of patient movement, status and location. By identifying delays and areas of congestion that cause poor patient flow, healthcare organizations can make improvements to increase efficiency and patient satisfaction.
Optimizing Hospital Wide Patient Flow
Whether it’s inpatient beds reaching full capacity or a bottleneck that causes overcrowding in the waiting room, healthcare facilities often face patient flow issues that impact not only satisfaction but also patient care.
At the same time, frequent bottlenecks and delays decrease facility efficiency and patient satisfaction, resulting in poor HCAHPS scores.
To anticipate surges, effectively allocate resources and avoid low patient satisfaction that could impact HCAHPS reimbursements, hospitals need a complete view of the entire patient journey.
AiRISTA is a leader in real time location system (RTLS) solutions specially designed for optimizing patient flow. Our innovative Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) wrist tag technology allows your healthcare facility to track patient movement and keep tabs on experiences that could harm satisfaction.
With sofia, AiRISTA’s RTLS platform, healthcare providers gain a detailed view of the patient journey to minimize wait time and achieve your patient flow goals.
Sofia – AiRISTA’s RTLS Hospital
Patient Flow Solution
Minimize Delays During Patient Transfer or Discharge
A patient wants to check out of the hospital after three days staying in inpatient beds. Everything is signed off and the nurse gives the all clear, but they can’t find a wheelchair for the patient.
The longer the wait time, the longer the hospital has to wait until they can fill the bed again. Meanwhile, the patient becomes dissatisfied.
Integrating AiRISTA’s RTLS tags and sofia software with your existing healthcare system enables proactive preparation for patient transfer, ensuring everything is in place once they’re cleared for discharge.
Proactive Notifications Regardless of Patient Location
A large academic medical facility cancer center utilizes the AiRISTA B4n badge tag. This allows patients to freely wander the campus gardens, chapel, and patios while waiting for their caregiver or appointment instead of confining them to a waiting room.
When a new exam room or bed opens up, the tag notifies patients of the availability to avoid delays that result in a patient flow issue.
The B4n Staff badge tag also fully integrates with the sofia healthcare system to record caregiver interactions and time with the patient.
Reducing Patient Mortality Rates in the Emergency Department
When a patient visits the emergency department of a large healthcare facility, they spend over six hours onboarding before they are assigned a bed.
In the emergency department, a wait time of six to eight hours increases the mortality rate by around 8% on average.
Using AiRISTA’s B4n tag, in addition to sofia, the hospital is able to identify and avoid bottlenecks while ensuring patients get to their destination. By minimizing congestion and improving patient flow, the emergency department is able to reduce wait times and, therefore, the mortality rate.
