  • OR Anti-Biotic Timing Compliance = 97% a 1% improvement;
  • DSU Holding Wait Time = 0.0 Min (Eliminated This Step);
  • DSU patient Prep Time = 30.4 Min, a 31% improvement;
  • PAT Phone Interview Time = 29.6 Min , a 27% improvement;
  • Case Readiness 72 Hrs. Out = 28.6%, a 60% improvement.

These improvements created a savings of over $2 million annually.

Captain Steve Harden, LifeWings CEO, says, "Financial survival is critical to hospital

They can concentrate on both. Our system produces financial stability and patient protection—which is always the real bottom line --- Protecting the lives of patients."
