    patient flow

    
    PITTSBURGH, Aug. 26 /CNW/ -- TeleTracking Technologies, the world leader
in patient flow automation solutions, has teamed with VHA, Inc. to offer the
national health care alliance's 1400 member hospitals the option to license
TeleTracking Technologies' patient flow automation technology.
    "It's clear that the VHA leadership is committed to helping its members
improve patient care, through better patient flow," said Anthony Sanzo,
President & CEO of TeleTracking Technologies, "and this relationship helps VHA
bring to its membership an awareness of time tested and proven patient flow
automation solutions and years of patient flow expertise with our Avanti(TM)
patient flow redesign services."
    VHA is the Nation's leading provider of supply chain management and
performance improvement services to not-for-profit health care providers.  The
option to procure industry-leading TeleTracking products is another facet of
VHA's commitment to provide members with tools and guidelines to enact
"leading practices" and improve performance by measuring against their peers
through detailed metrics.
    "VHA understands that patient flow is directly linked to key outcomes,"
said Amy Anthony, VHA Senior Vice President of Supply Chain Services.

customer satisfaction our members need to successfully address the capacity
constraints many of them face."
    TeleTracking software and patient flow redesign services help hospitals
improve patient flow through process change and by leveraging proven
technology to automate every state of patient flow. Through automation,
hospitals are also able to measure and monitor their performance in order to
improve the flow process.
