Bed Management

bed management systems

Bed Management SolutionsBed Management - It has long been a problem for hospitals to understand exactly which inpatients they have in which locations. Recording, managing and communicating this information has been a challenge for hospitals for many years.
Hospital staff and bed management are very keen to do their best for their patients and many innovative attempts have been made to record and communicate this information manually. More often than not individual wards and departments record information in different ways using different media ranging from post-its to wipe-boards and often capturing different data as they may feel appropriate. Manual recording of this data means it is virtually impossible to centrally record and collate this information. The old maxim of “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it” stands true.

The result of this lack of information can manifest itself in many different ways. Ultimately the inability to effectively manage this issue can result in potentially compromised patient outcomes, unsatisfactory patient experiences, poor productivity and inefficiency, litigation and poor perception of the hospital. All of these factors have a direct effect on the bottom line in an adverse way.

Bed Management

Bed Management - To help healthcare providers overcome these challenges, Parity Medical has partnered with a number of specialist healthcare Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) to provide digital systems to allow hospitals to plan, record, communicate and mange Patient Flow and real time Bed Management information in a way that provides numerous benefits to all of the stakeholders in the organisation. What’s more, adopting these systems has a significant and positive effect on the bottom line.

The Bed management software systems are designed so that every ward and department records the same basic information with options to go into further detail for specific specialism's. They are designed to be easy-to-use and are based on best practice. Information can be accessed and entered in a number of different way but by far the most popular is to use a large format LCD touch screen. This allows clinicians and mangers to see information at a glance and to make changes with a touch of the screen.
