Since 2006 Getinge Cetrea A/S has supported the workflow for Danish and international healthcare professionals. Our patient flow management solution, INSIGHT, provides complete transparency, collaboration and overview in and across departments, enabling management and healthcare professionals to deliver the best possible care for patients.
INSIGHT is the interactive patient flow management solution from Getinge that gives you complete control over the patient flow from arrival to discharge. It supports the highest standards of care by allowing healthcare professionals to plan, prioritize and take the right actions according to the ever-changing situation in the hospital so that they can deliver the best possible care for patients.
Streamlined processes, clearly defined areas of responsibility, and an immediate overview of capacity and availabilities ensure a smoothly running Emergency Department that meets region-wide KPIs. Through the implementation of INSIGHT and by establishing new work processes in the Emergency Department OUH was able to meet their predefined targets while creating a better, safer and more structured environment for both staff and patients.
With the implementation of INSIGHT in the Emergency Department a Danish hospital analyzed and evaluated the installation over the course of 19 months from June 2009 to January 2011. The results showed an increase in department efficiency of 19%. This was due to an increase in the number of patients by 7,03%, and a decrease in number of employees by 9,3%. Consequently, the number of patients per staff rose from 185 to 218 per year. In addition, 6.400 working hours per year were saved among hospital doctors and nurses who also experienced a number of benefits, such as increased patient safety, better overviews, reduced stress level, fewer disturbances, fewer phone calls, better data and easier location of colleagues.
In the surgical department INSIGHT provides overview of the daily surgery schedule, the staff and the current situation in each operating room. This information is not only beneficial to the staff in the surgical department, but also to staff in supporting departments, who will know exactly when to expect the patient. A number of studies have been conducted regarding productivity gains from implementing INSIGHT. Findings have revealed that operating rooms running INSIGHT were 15% more time-efficient than rooms without INSIGHT. The same study found that the surgical department experienced an overall productivity gain of 4% per year (estimated DRG-value).
