StatCom, a healthcare software solutions developer, announced availability of its Hospital Operating System solution, a comprehensive patient throughput solution. The hospital-wide operating system was developed to enable hospitals to achieve maximum operational performance and substantial reductions in Average Length of Stay (ALOS), while greatly enhancing the patient and staff experience. Actions across the hospital are prioritized, allowing patients to flow at their best possible rate with respect to service, quality, safety and resource consumption.

By optimizing the whole facility, StatCom helps hospitals achieve a significant competitive advantage by increasing bed turns, accelerating discharges and reducing diverts and delayed cases-directly impacting healthcare costs. The majority of hospitals have clinical and financial systems, as well as departmental solutions, but they do not have an operating system that is able to track and manage all cross-vertical patient flow logistics in real-time.

Our continued growth, despite the economic climate, emphasizes the need that hospitals have to maximize existing capacity and resources by being more efficient, said Ben Sawyer, executive vice president Client Services for StatCom. Our customers needed a dramatic increase in efficiency that existing bed management offerings can’t provide. We designed the StatCom solution to deliver game changing reductions in Length of Stay by substantially increasing the efficiency of patient flow, systems and information.

StatCom’s Hospital Operating System solution enables hospitals to orchestrate cross-departmental flow for all patients simultaneously and manage the unplanned variables in daily resource availability and patient census. This represents a shift in thinking from Silo driven data to hospital-wide information on patient flow across verticals, Optimizing parts to optimizing the whole, Anecdote and opinion to effective fact based decisions, Low coordination and collaboration to orchestrated care execution, Uncertain service delivery to more predictable service performance.
