Tampa General Hospital has tapped GE Healthcare to help it build a new care coordination center that will put predictive analytics to work on an array of quality and experience improvement projects – for patients, families and staff alike – at the hospital.
The center will be powered by what GE calls its Wall of Analytics, which can process streams of real-time data from multiple sources and offer to offer alerts and suggested actions to help the hospital track patient progression, predict and prevent safety risks and manage the workload of its staff.
“We want to leverage this system to improve efficiency and shorten the time patients are in the hospital by better managing their care,” said Tampa General CEO John Couris in a statement. “This technology will help to reach our goal of providing coordinated patient care after they leave the hospital.”
