Vitalhub creates patient flow software re coronavirus

2020-03-13 07:32 ET - News Release

Mr. Dan Matlow reports


Vitalhub Corp. has developed a patient flow and data visibility solution to assist in response to the evolving Covid-19 crisis.

The company is responding to requests from a number of its clients to release a patient flow and data visibility solution to provide essential information to care facilities to accommodate the anticipated significant influx of patients into the health system as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. As screening centres are set to open to give relief to overcrowded emergency departments, health care providers are seeking solutions that can enable real-time and accurate information allowing them to track which patients are positive for Covid-19, optimize capacity and manage demand.

The most recent statistics from the Ontario Ministry of Health show the average patient admitted to hospital prior to the escalation of the Covid-19 pandemic, in January, 2020, spent 18.3 hours in the emergency room until a bed became available on a ward. In anticipation of preparing for a potential surge in demand related to Covid-19, Vitalhub customers are using its patient flow solutions to support their pandemic planning and ensure that they are prepared for the anticipated surge in demand.

Vitalhub's solutions are designed specifically for complex hospital and regional environments, offering technology that connects leaders and teams to the pulse of operations, from patient-tracking to emergency department wait times to bed utilization and patient flow bottlenecks.

"This pandemic is an evolving crisis that is worrisome to all, and our health care providers and the regulators are acting prudently in assessing and implementing solutions that can assist in managing the potential of a significant surge in patients -- we will do everything we can to support them," said Dan Matlow, chief executive officer of Vitalhub. "As a hosted-based solution, Vitalhub has the ability to develop and deploy our products and tools very quickly, with the infrastructure in place to quickly deploy solutions that provide important information to track Covid-19 patients, in conjunction with the operational requirements needed to support the evolving needs of the pandemic."

Vitalhub's patient flow solutions are currently used in over 40 large hospitals and regions, across six countries, and can be used as stand-alone products, or integrated into existing systems.
