Case Study: Bringing Two Halves Of The Whole Together With VISion™

St. Joseph Hospital is a 235-bed facility, split between two campuses. St. Joseph's provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient services. A Level III Trauma Center, St. Joseph's Emergency Department sees 60,000 patients annually and keeps track of them all with VISion™, the Versus Information System®.

St. Joseph Hospital went live with the Versus system about a week after opening the new, expanded ED. The Versus system allows St. Joseph's staff to automatically locate patients, staff and equipment throughout the ED. Upon registration, patients receive badges which remain with the patient throughout the visit. By wearing the badge, when the patient walks into an exam room, that room is automatically assigned to the patient. The patient's location and the status of the room are each displayed on central LCD communication boards and individual workstations. In this way, the Nurse Team Lead can monitor room status without leaving the nurses' station—no phone calls, no walking surveys, no paging.
