New York’s Montefiore Medical Center ED Preps for Expected Patient Surge

August 21, 2007 - TeleTracking Technologies announced it will automate patient flow at New York City’s Montefiore Medical Center as part of an initiative to accommodate expected patient increases when several surrounding health facilities close.
The 1,122-bed health system will adopt a suite of TeleTracking solutions designed to manage existing bed capacity more efficiently and avert hospital overcrowding.
Already among the nation’s busiest emergency care providers, Montefiore annually serves more than 65,000 inpatients and nearly 2 million outpatients in the Bronx and Westchester County.
TeleTracking is a Pittsburgh-based healthcare software firm which provides software and process redesign services that create prompts, feedback and data flow to make real-time capacity management possible.
Montefiore engaged patient flow expert Lisa Romano, RN, MSN, to help redesign their patient flow processes. Romano is director of Avanti patient flow services, a division of TeleTracking Technologies. Before joining Avanti, she was administrator of patient logistics at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network.
TeleTracking Technologies is a leader in patient flow automation, serving more than 675 hospitals in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom. It provides a wide array of software products and services designed to deliver real-time control over the patient flow process, which is acknowledged as the No. 1 cause of hospital overcrowding worldwide.
