New patient flow technology has been installed at the Countess that reduces the time people spend in hospital by improving bed management and giving staff more time to care for patients. The Co-ordination Centre Programme uses 4,000 sensors installed throughout the site to create a real-time picture of the entire hospital, giving the location of tagged equipment and picking up data from badges and electronic wristbands staff and patients are being asked to wear. This information is sent to a Co-ordination Centre, which acts like an air traffic control room, where decisions can be made in patients’ best interests and to reduce waiting times where possible using the real-time data. Watch how this approach makes a difference to life at The Countess on the Co-ordination Centre Programme video below:
