Improve Existing Endoscopy Procedures and Flow
Endoscopy departments are dynamic environments that require tight coordination of clinicians, equipment, and patients to effectively manage throughput. These factors create a perfect opportunity for deployment of a real-time workflow control system.
EndoControl™ is a patent-pending, real-time, workflow solution designed to automate and coordinate all endoscopic activities. It puts physicians, staff, and other medical center personnel on the same page at the same time. EndoControl™ uses RTLS (Real Time Locating Systems) to automate the manual process of tracking patient location and case status. Its intuitive interface allows for continuous coordination of rooms, procedures, patients, schedules, and critical equipment. Information can be transparently viewed by all those with a need to know both inside and outside the endoscopy department. Most modifications are executed with the touch of a finger. The "forward looking" design of the system constantly reevaluates and modifies the day-of-procedure schedule. The system also automatically alerts appropriate parties when situations arise that may cause delays in the immediate future. Due to its highly integrated design and implementation, EndoControl™ requires virtually no training and does not alter any existing clinical practice or IT system.
