Founded in 2014 in Norway by a Chief Medical Officer, SmartCrowding addresses the issue of overcrowding in healthcare facilities, empowering medical staff around the world with a means to massively reduce bottlenecks on and between their wards, hospitals, regions or even at a national level. The solution helps hospitals to plan for high activity in order to free up beds, equipment & staff which in turn will improve patient experiences and outcomes, relieve stress on staff, maximise budget usage and ultimately, reduce mortality rates.
The solution is a cloud-based Software as a Service that is installed on desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones for a 24/7, real-time holistic view of operations and potential or actual delays to patient flow. Pre-defined and management-agreed action plans are delivered to all key stakeholders as and when needed, to remain ahead of the curve and avoid inundation. Ultimately, lives will be saved, budgets better-spent and stress amongst staff relieved on a large scale.
