Hospital Management

25 Apr 2023
Called the Patient Progression Hub, the new coordination center at Children’s Mercy Kansas City leverages artificial intelligence (AI), real-time data and predictive analytics to optimize care management, as well as coordination right from the patient’s admission to their discharge. The 6,000-square-foot center features a video wall with tailored analytic apps to monitor and streamline the flow of patients.
GE HealthCare Command Centers collaborated with Children’s Mercy to develop and deploy the new hub. “Our goal is to make it easier for Children’s Mercy to orchestrate daily patient care, which in the end means it is that much easier to answer the crucial question: can you accept this child?,” shared 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.”
