QGenda, a US-based healthcare workforce management solutions provider, has launched QGenda Room Management, thereby extending its enterprise scheduling platform to provide insight required to manage fluctuations in patient demand.
This platform enables health systems and clinics to manage capacity in a better way and increase revenue.
QGenda CEO Greg Benoit said: “Financial strain on health systems has only increased in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing organizations to focus even more on managing costs and optimizing provider and exam room schedules.
“Anticipating an influx of patients who delayed elective surgeries, preventative visits, and other specialty treatments, clinics may quickly become overwhelmed without an efficient scheduling system in place. Finding ways to increase patient access, without having to invest in new space or hire new staff, is imperative. That is why we prioritized highlighting the larger picture of clinical capacity in our platform: to provide visibility and intelligent scheduling of both providers and exam rooms.”
Although health systems automate and streamline workflows throughout their organisations, exam room management has been mostly a manual process.
The availability of a complete health system that can efficiently schedule and manage providers and exam rooms through one centralised system can positively impact revenue, and enable better patient access.
QGenda Room Management offers a real-time view of exam room availability, automates clinic session changes, and ensures availability of proper equipment to providers.
When it is used as part of the complete QGenda platform, healthcare organisations will be able to have exam room schedules and provider schedules in sync.
