Moses Taylor deploys patient tracking.

Moses Taylor Hospital (MTH, Scranton, Pa.) has completed an implementation of Amelior EDTracker (Charlotte, N.C.) software to automatically track patients and assets in its 35,000 census emergency department using an ultrasonic positioning system from Sonitor Technologies.

MTH's emergency department installed large flat panel monitors to display big-screen views of the main tracking board and waiting room in status screen and map layouts. Icons indicate the status of patients and rooms as well as indicate patient flow roadblocks and patient safety alerts.

Moses Taylor Hospital is a community-based health care facility with 173 beds, 22 neuropsychiatric inpatient beds, 32 skilled nursing beds as well as a 14-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit. In addition to a full-service emergency department, Moses Taylor Hospital has medical/surgical and other acute care specialty services.
