The issue:

To keep patients flowing through the patient pathways the trust needed a better way to understand what beds were available to those entering the system. Other market providers didn’t work well enough and had overcomplicated the process.

Our unique solution:

Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust developed a hybrid, modular mobile solution that provides bed management from the emergency department into the hospital system that was able to:

  • control the flow
  • manage bed state
  • message those in the supply chain
  • transfer tasks, discharge and acuity

The App works from a tablet or smartphone and updated in real time. This allows bed managers to quickly source a suitable bed and allocate it to a patient. It is perfect for any trust that needs to monitor the dynamic bed state, particularly those with acute or emergency departments.
