N.J. provider adopts GEs hospital workflow solution
Virtua Healthcare in Marlton, N.J., is adopting GE Healthcare’s AgileTrac Asset Manager and Enterprise Capacity Management Solution, an automated workflow solution that allows healthcare staff to track a patient’s inpatient experience, as well as manage the hospital’s assets.

GE said its AgileTrac system leverages Real-Time Location System technology to help hospitals manage inventory and automate inpatient workflow. Flat-screen monitors with visualization software will be located throughout the hospital in units like the ER, where doctors and nurses can use touch-screen features to see where patients, staff and equipment are located and receive alerts that notify personnel when a patient is ready for the next step in the care cycle.

A non-profit organization, Virtua employs 8,400 clinical and administrative personnel and approximately 1,800 physicians serve as medical staff members.
