Inpatient stays are one of the most expensive areas of healthcare. What would the impact of better bed management be for your organization? Our Bed Management ROI Calculator will calculate how much better bed management could save you each month and more importantly how many lives it could save.
A patient in the wrong bed extends their average length of stay by one day.*
Every day scheduled surgery is cancelled for non-surgical reasons. Cancelled operations leave your whole team idle. Your anaesthetist, surgeon and nurses. That’s wasted time and money as well as lost revenue.
A patient placed in the wrong bed has worse outcomes. Their inpatient mortality can increase by 1.45%.*
