Florida Hospital Improves Transport Efficiency Despite Rising ADC and a Reduction in Staff

By on May 19, 2015 in Results

This 250-bed hospital in northeastern Florida implemented BedWatch Transport Control in September 2013.

During the first year of service, the hospital staff used BedWatch to drive significant improvements in both performance and efficiency, despite rising Average Daily Census (ADC) numbers and a reduction in transport staff.
