Tees Hospitals FT has continually faced financial constraints as well as
patient flow challenges. An especially harsh winter in 2011/2012 exacerbated
what was already a difficult situation, driving up bed-occupancy rates and
increasing the number of delayed discharges, patient outliers and the number of
operations needing to be cancelled.
The Case Managers use the Medworxx software to conduct daily
assessments on each patient, enter the patient data into Medworxx and
then carry that data into the hospitals’ daily bed management and
multidisciplinary team meetings conducted on each ward.
assessment and bed utilisation data is comprehensive, accurate and reliable. This
is enabling South Tees Hospitals FT to not only tackle patient flow barriers
and bottlenecks at both the ward level and organization-wide but also to
identify process efficiencies and potential savings for re allocation and or
I didn’t have Medworxx, I would need to invent it.
