The Power of Streamlined Patient Transfers

Lessons from the University of Maryland Medical System

Clinical communication & collaboration (CC&C) platforms can help accelerate patient transfers by facilitating secure, real-time communication between care teams and transfer centers. The University of Maryland Access Center (UMAC) is modernizing its patient transfer workflow with the help of the TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform. In this session, Dr. Mark Sutherland discusses:

  • How to automate the transfer intake workflow by integrating a CC&C platform with the EHR to smooth the transfer process, improve patient safety, and drive provider satisfaction
  • An example of how geographically dispersed care teams coordinated in real time to transfer, evaluate, and treat a patient with a time-sensitive condition
  • How role-based messaging and integrated scheduling streamline the transfer process
