I was wondering if there were any hospitals out there that utilize apps to improve Emergency Department patient flow. For example, an app that allows someone coming to an ER to register first thus cutting down time spent on admin etc. Apps that show wait times. Anything like this?
Not that I know of. On initial glance, don’t think that would be useful in the Emergency setting since priority often times isn’t in getting a patient’s name — rather their “level of triage” — 1 through 5 first. In an office setting obviously registration is more important. Maybe in an urgent care setting that might be useful.
