"In 2021, it is hard to fathom that hospitals are still making multiple phone calls or faxes to find care resources for their patients."
AUSTIN, TX, August 26, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Working with Texas hospitals, XFERALL, a leading mobile application and web-based patient transfer platform is addressing the crisis in hospital bed capacity amid the increasing number of COVID-19 hospitalizations.
The Texas hospitals using XFERALL to transfer patients with medical conditions between August 2020 and July 2021 received responses from participating hospitals indicating available bed capacity in less than 1 minute, 18 seconds and secured acceptance for patient transfers in less than 20 minutes.
"XFERALL can't create new beds or new hospital staff, but we can greatly reduce the time it takes healthcare providers to identify the capacity in the system that does exist," said Shana Palmieri, chief clinical officer, XFERALL. "We help hospital staff more quickly locate available beds and expedite transfer of their patients who need a higher level of care. Hospital capacity has never been so stretched, and we are proud to be a part of the solution."
Using XFERALL's mobile platform, clinicians no longer have to perform a series of numerous, repetitive, and time-consuming steps to identify facilities with available beds, resources, and clinically appropriate staff to accept patient transfers. Hospitals that need to transfer patients and those with the capacity to accept those transfers communicate efficiently and directly over the XFERALL app. The result is that they can focus more on patient care, and patients get the essential care they need more quickly.
"In 2021, it is hard to fathom that hospitals are still making multiple phone calls or faxes to find care resources for their patients," added Palmieri. "With XFERALL's mobile app, they have the power in the palm of their hands to cast as wide a net as needed to identify clinically appropriate care for their patients with COVID-19, sepsis, appendicitis, traumatic injury, or any other condition needing a higher level of care."
Based in Austin, Texas, XFERALL works with hospitals, law enforcement, mobile behavioral health crisis teams, and community mental health agencies to accelerate the patient transfer process so patents access clinically appropriate care faster. The XFERALL mobile application and web-based platform coordinates patient transfers to improve access, timeliness, and quality of care for patients with acute physical conditions, such as stroke, trauma, and complex surgical needs, and for patients with behavioral health conditions.
