BedWatch Features Update: New Patient Core Launch | Oct. 15, 2014

By on October 15, 2014 in News

BedWatch’s new Patient Core allows users to effectively separate the EVS status of a bed (occupies, clean, dirty, in progress, reserved, or unavailable) from the bed status according to the hospital’s primary Admission-Discharge-Transfer (ADT) system.

BedWatch Bed Control users are often ahead of their hospital’s ADT system, because EVS team members don’t have to wait for discharge paperwork to be submitted to clean a dirty, discharged patient room. In fact, a new patient may be admitted to the bed before the hospital ADT has registered the previous patient as discharged.

The BedWatch Bed Board now features an additional “ADT State” column that displays an icon if the hospital ADT indicates that the bed is occupied.

The new BedWatch Patient Core ADT State view provides hospital Bed Board users with an additional layer of transparency, allowing them to quickly and easily identify and adjust discrepancies between bed status information in BedWatch and the hospital ADT.
