  • Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL – a 564 bed, Level I Trauma Center and ANCC Designated Magnet Hospital will share how their placement and transfer center has allowed them to grow 54%, increase patient transfers by 29% and decrease LOS by 5% since 2013.  Ryan Mayhew, Assistant Professor of Medicine & CMO for Access & Clinical Operations will lead this discussion in conjunction with Daisy Rodriguez, Administrative Director for Emergency Medical Services, Patient Placement & Care Management, and Debbie Casteel-DiGrazia, Manager of Patience Placement.
  • NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY – Holly Meisner, VP of Patient Access is responsible for oversight, coordination and management of patient flow for 2,500 beds across all campuses at NYP.  Holly will share how they launched their Patient Placement Operations Center in February 2016 and immediately saw results such as a decompressed ED, hundreds of more patients seen, a drastic reduction in patients waiting for a bed, and hours shaved off of transferred patient times.  To learn more about what NYP is doing to provide visibility and transparency across their enterprise, check out their recent article in TeleTracking’s Patient Flow Quarterly by clicking here.

  • The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, OH – Dr. Mark Moseley, Vice Chair of Clinical Affairs & Associate Professor will share why OSU implemented TeleTracking as an operational complement to their Epic EMR system and centralized their operations across the health system.  Early results are as follows – discharges via patient transport increased by 55%, discharges by 2pm increased by 75%, ED diversion hours decreased by 42% and LWBS decreased by 38%.  To learn more about what OSU has achieved in less than one year, click here to download their recent article in TeleTracking’s Patient Flow Quarterly.
  • UAB Medicine, Birmingham, AL – this 1,157 bed hospital is a Level I Trauma Center, Magnet Facility and Becker’s Top 100 Hospital. At one time UAB was on diversion 60% of the time, was declining over 4,000 patients a year, and was boarding patients more than 3.5 hours.  UAB upgraded the TeleTracking system to transform the effectiveness of their Center for Patient Flow, and they combined their patient placement and transfer center.  Since then they’ve decreased diversions more than 50%, increased accepted transfers more than 3,000/yr, increased discharge orders by 10am by 35%.  Brittany Lindsey, Director of Patient Flow for UAB Medicine also presented at AONE16.
