We have developed a mobile application for hospitals that provides support for admitting patients to wards in line with admission targets.

Bed Manager

A Windows Mobile application that enables NHS Trust hospitals to better achieve their admission targets for getting patients into beds within a four-hour period starting from the time that a decision to admit has been made.  

The desktop component manages the entry of patient details and the specification of ward type and special facilities, and also starts the timer running.  

There are three colour codes signifying 0-4 hours, 4-8 hours and 8-12 hours.  The bed manager has a mobile device that shows the patients that have been entered on the desktop component together with the admission requirements and the colour coding.  The colour coding allows all personnel responsible for admissions to see where the admission target is likely to be missed and therefore allows informed decisions to address the issue.
