Children’s Mercy Kansas City has launched their Patient Progression Hub – a hospital operations center that uses AI, predictive analytics, and real-time information to optimize care progression and coordination from the time of a patient’s admission to their discharge. 

Children’s Mercy collaborated with GE HealthCare to deploy Command Center software across their organization and co-locate key operational teams in a 6,000 square foot command center that serves as a hub for streamlining patient flow and focusing on quality outcomes.

"Our goal is to make it easier for Children's Mercy to orchestrate daily patient care, which in the end means it's that much easier to answer the crucial question: can you accept this child," said Jeff Terry, CEO, Command Centers at GE HealthCare. "The Patient Progression Hub combines several existing teams into a new center-of-gravity for patient access and supports throughput and quality care delivery. GE HealthCare is proud to provide its "Command Center" software which is used in the Hub and across Children's Mercy."
