Pittsburgh-based TeleTracking Technologies has acquired transfer center software technology designed to be used as either a standalone product or to be incorporated into its Avanti Patient Flow consulting division’s Transfer Center, it says.

TeleTracking is now selling this product in its current form, and will begin integrating the new technology into its patient flow software solutions, according to the company.

The TeleTracking Avanti Patient Flow consulting division developed a specialized process model to help hospitals design a centralized Transfer Center that it says helps hospitals better manage referral and transfer admissions, increase transfer volumes, improve physician satisfaction, analyze and respond to referral patterns and provide patients with rapid initiation of life-saving care. The addition of this software will further streamline and track the flow of communications necessary to smoothly and efficiently accept transfers and referrals, it touts.
