All Oregon hospitals to use GE hospital bed management system in 2022

20 Oct 2021

DOTMed’s senior editor John Fischer shares more about Oregon hospitals which will be the first in the U.S. with access to GE HealthCare’s new automated statewide hospital bed management solution, which is designed to help track and manage bed capacity in ICUs and ERs.

The Oregon Capacity System is the platform that utilizes GE’s command center software to report the number of available beds throughout the state to clinicians so that they can make timely decisions on whom to assign a bed and where. It is expected to help not just with the pandemic but in areas that are frequently plagued by natural disasters such as hurricanes and wildfires.

Apprise Health Insights, which is aiming to have the system in use at every hospital in the state by the summer of 2022, is leading its deployment.
