The University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC, Rochester, N.Y.) installed Menlo Park, Calif.-based Allocade’s OnCue system to automate patient flow throughout the hospital and improve operational efficiencies by creating dynamic patient itineraries.

According to the company, the On-Cue system was designed to minimize the impact of disruptions in scheduling by streamlining coordination and communications among all caregivers. Utilizing artificial intelligence algorithms, On-Cue creates a dynamic patient itinerary of each patient’s resource plan of care for inpatients, outpatients and emergency department patients that is continually adjusted in real-time as conditions change, it says.

The University of Rochester Medical Center is part of the University’s health research, teaching, patient care, and community outreach missions. The University’s health care delivery network is anchored by Strong Memorial Hospital, a 739-bed, University-owned teaching hospital.
