SAN ANTONIO, March 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- One year after Methodist Healthcare System of San Antonio made patient flow its No. 1 priority, transfer volume at the six-hospital system has nearly doubled, bed turnover times have been halved, diversions have been virtually eliminated and revenue has exceeded projections by eight percent.

Methodist CEO Jamie Wesolowski will explain the methods behind those achievements, and the enterprise capacity management platform supporting them, when he delivers the keynote address at TeleTracking Technologies' Patient Flow Symposium here April 4th and 5th.

TeleTracking will also share details of its new Business Analytics Division, which was formed to provide TeleTracking clients with the tools and services needed to measure and sustain the improvements in patient flow and patient care that can be achieved through the use of TeleTracking solutions and related hospital systems.    

Symposium attendees will also have the opportunity to:

  • Experience first-hand the automated nerve center of Methodist's patient placement and transfer operations.
  • Learn how Dallas Children's Hospital and Scripps Health overcame their flow problems.
  • Understand how a fully-integrated, system-wide capacity management platform can have a profound impact on patient care and the bottom line.

The symposium is free to hospital executives and staff.  For more information, or to register, visit:
