BedWatch has launched an exciting new platform that empowers support service staff and clinical teams.
BedWatch Transport Control now features a specialized “Average Transport Completion Times by Month” report which aggregates average completion times into a clear, dynamic report that can easily be exported as an image to simplify internal performance reporting.
BedWatch Admit Control features a “Bed Placements by Hour” report, which allows all Admit Control users within a hospital or system to access accurate data around daily patient placement activity, hour by hour.

BedWatch Admit Control is fully mobile, like all BedWatch products, and allows users to access the full spectrum of tools using any Internet-capable device — even a smartphone.
