Versus Technology announced the deployment of Enterprise VISion for the St. Louis Veteran’s Medical Center to help manage patient flow, room status and interaction with patients in real-time.
With more than 200 hospital beds, the medical center hopes to use the real time location system to improve safety, efficiency and volume management for its growing patient population.
Within the Eye Clinic and the Eye Surgery OR, patients will be assigned a Versus locating badge, which will help staff to not only quickly and easily locate the patient, but also monitor the patient’s wait time and the length of specific procedures.
Staff will also wear Versus badges, so the clinic can monitor the amount of time patient is alone time and the amount of time spent with the caregiver.
The medical center is hopping the new systems will alleviate problems due to a predicted increase in patient volume, as a result of the recent troop surges in Afghanistan.
