The Assign platform automates rounding workflows starting with balanced patient distribution
medaptus' Assign platform is the hospital industry’s only intelligent patient assignment technology that aligns patients with attending/admitting providers based on patient type, history, staffing availability, workload limits and more.
Preventing medical unit patient flow issues
Hospitalist and other inpatient teams spend a significant amount of time on a daily basis determining which doctors will be rounding on which admitted patients. The core issue is that on any given day, there is no set patient schedule, just a list of patients needing to be seen. Complicating this matter further is that the roster of available providers typically changes on a daily basis and each may have a different patient workload limit. Until now patient distribution has often been managed manually, often on paper, either by an administrative staff member, or at some hospitals, a physician.
medaptus analyzes data in real-time to make the best assignments, then distributes them to the care team, updates the EHR, and can even be used for revenue capture and reconciliation support. Rounds start earlier which patients, providers (including ER doctors) truly appreciate.
