Singapore General Hospital improves bed management with automated system

 Hospital IT Europe, article (summary), summer 2010:

To better manage bed resources, Singapore General Hospital deployed the Eclipsys patient flow software in integration with wireless patient location tracking system from Cadi Scientific. The integrated system significantly improved operational efficiency in patient flow from admission to discharge. In particular, it reduced daily average overflow by 12%, the average time to find a bed from 15 minutes to 5 minutes, and the number of phone calls per bed request from 5 minutes to 2 minutes.
