TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2017 /CNW/ - The following B-Roll is available by Video On-Demand web download.
STORY SUMMARY: Humber River Hospital, North America's first fully digital hospital, will be hosting a press event to mark the grand opening of Humber River Hospital's Command Centre, a first in Canada. At the event, you will hear remarks from a number of speakers and then there will be a media tour of the Command Centre.
The Command Centre is a game changer for a healthcare system. Built in collaboration with GE Healthcare, at the heart of the 4,500 square-foot Command Centre is a GE Wall of Analytics that processes real-time data from multiple source systems across the hospital. The system applies advanced and predictive analytics and provides a continuous "read out" alerting staff to everything from delayed patient care activity, unbalanced physician and staff workload and unusual situations that may correlate to increased risk of patient harm. This information provides real-time decision support so staff can prioritize patient care activities and discharges, make short-term staffing decisions and mitigate potential bottlenecks before they occur.
