Tampa General Hospital (TGH) and GE Healthcare are partnering to launch a new care coordination center that will harness predictive analytics to help improve the experience and outcomes for patients, families and hospital staff. Set to open in 2019, the 9,000 square foot care coordination center will be powered by GE’s Wall of Analytics, which continually examines data that recommends actions to reduce delays in patient progression, predict and prevent risk, and balance staff workload.
The center will house staff members from different hospital departments that will use the artificial intelligence data to improve patient transports, reduce patient wait times, enhance the coordination of services and speed up the discharge process.
Tampa General Hospital, a 1010-bed non-profit academic medical center, delivers world-class care as the region’s only center for Level l trauma and comprehensive burn care. It is one of the nation’s busiest adult solid organ transplant centers and is the primary teaching hospital for the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine.
“We want to leverage this system to improve efficiency and shorten the time patients are in the hospital by better managing their care,” said John Couris, president and CEO of Tampa General. “This technology will help to reach our goal of providing coordinated patient care after they leave the hospital. We are excited to be working with GE on this project. We believe in GE.”
