Frequently Asked Questions

Your questions about emergency department workflows, answered.

What are strategies to prevent emergency department overcrowding?

According to research published in the Journal of Personalized Medicine, when patients’ time in the emergency room is prolonged after treatment, pending transfer to an inpatient unit, it creates crowding in the emergency room. Role and team-based messaging with TigerConnect speeds the ED to inpatient transfer process, thereby reducing overcrowding and improving throughput.

How can hospitals improve patient throughput?

The TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform speeds ED workflows throughout the patient journey by connecting the right providers for the right need and at the right time. With TigerConnect, emergency departments can expedite ED triage, automate consultation notifications, automatically route critical test result notifications to the appropriate providers, and speed inpatient transfers.


How can hospitals reduce emergency room wait times?

Reducing emergency department wait times is critical for patient safety and satisfaction. TigerConnect enables hospitals and healthcare providers to improve their processes and maximize efficiency, leading to shorter wait times and improved outcomes. Moreover, the technology can reduce overcrowding in the ED, freeing up more time for clinicians to provide better care, increasing patient satisfaction, and improving overall hospital operations.
