Queen’s Hospital Burton in England, UK, has selected ExtraMed Inpatient Flow Manager (IPFM) to help clinicians manage patient flow efficiently.

ExtraMed was acquired by Alcidion Group in April this year.

Apart from managing the patient flow, ExtraMed’s IPFM software helps in avoiding delays in patent discharge and free up capacity to accommodate new patients.

The patient management software was earlier deployed at Royal Derby Hospital and helped the staff to reduce patients stay at the hospital and further improved patient care.

Based on these outcomes, University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust (UHDB) decided to implement IPFM system at its Burton site.

Since 2018, Queen’s Hospital Burton has been part of UHDB, one of the largest NHS trusts that serves population of Derbyshire and Staffordshire.

Once deployed at Queen’s Hospital Burton, the system will help clinical staff to deliver joined-up care and support the management to manage the bed capacity more efficiently.

It also serves as a replacement to the manual whiteboards and processes and offers a clear view of the patients’ status to staff and also helps them in making informed decisions.

UHDB Nursing director Gill Ogden said: “Staff are really excited about this technology coming to Burton, where we expect immediate differences for discharge and overall patient flow, with more functionality we will explore over time.

“Clinical teams at Royal Derby Hospital have really valued having information at a glance and the improved communication that IPFM has supported.

“Nurses on wards in Burton will too be able to quickly see what is happening with the patient and what needs to happen to prevent delays in patients going home.”
