||Medical Providers are dependent upon their medical assistants to maintain the order of their patients, which means the medical assistants, must always be steps ahead of their Provider, playing the role of a traffic cop. This responsibility is unnecessary. Medical assistants have many other more important and valuable tasks to perform.Expeditor's Room Sequencing capability automatically maintains the order of patients to be seen while also showing the location of Providers behind closed doors. This feature ensures that patients are seen in the correct order and saves valuable steps and time for the Providers and their medical assistants. The visual cues in the exam corridor immediately draw attention to the next patient ready to be seen. The providers and staff all know what the cumulative workload is at all times. Expeditor provides many different sequencing options to accommodate different types of Providers and services. In situations like X-Ray, Lab and Urgent Care, patients are seen on a first come, first served basis, as opposed to scheduled appointments with a specific provider. Cascading room sequencing is specifically designed for this type of patient flow. This highly flexible cascading room sequencing capability enables Lean patient flow management by instantly notifying all staff who is next for X-Ray, Lab, Urgent Care or other situations where first come, first served patient flow is appropriate.

||Many times Providers require assistance during a patient exam. This means the Provider must interrupt the patient visit, open the door to the exam room, and begin looking for medical assistance, wasting an inordinate amount of time. The Assistant Call capability permits the provider to simply press a button conveniently located inside the exam room. This action activates a light and an audible tone outside the exam room and in other remote locations such as a nurse station. If staff does not respond within a pre-determined amount of time, the light and tone are automatically repeated.
||Throughout the day, there are times when a patient needs to be seen out of sequence. It may be for a high acuity patient or a patient that requires a quick recheck before being discharged. Some patients will wait for a long time just to see the Provider for less than a minute. Priority Override eliminates that bottleneck by permitting the medical assistant to change the order of patients right at the exam room door while the order of the remaining patients stays the same. The benefit is that Priority Override reduces patient wait times in the exam rooms and increases patient throughput in the practice, permitting more patients to see their Provider during the same number of practice hours.
||Quite often patients need to be alone in the exam room - to dilate, change into a gown, or for an injection to take effect. Pressing the priority light twice and the Provider sequence light activates the timed priority feature. The room status is now occupied, but the light doesn't flash indicating that the Provider's presence is needed until a preset time has elapsed. These times can be customized according to each procedure. Once time has elapsed the system will automatically put the patient back in the queue.
|Flexible Room Assignment
||In today's economic environment, it is imperative that medical practices be as flexible and efficient as possible. Flexible room assignment enables a practice to assign a variable number of exam rooms to a particular Provider as needed throughout the day. The system maintains the order of patients for each Provider within their assigned set of exam rooms. This capability affords the practice the flexibility to see patients in the most efficient manner possible.
|Patient Ready Notification
||Frequently, Providers are in their offices or at substations reviewing charts or returning important phone calls. Patient Ready Notification alerts the Provider that a patient is ready to be seen in an exam room and the number of patients waiting at any given time.
|Mohs Slide Ready Light
||Informing a Mohs surgeon in a timely manner that a slide is ready for evaluation is a continuous challenge. The Expeditor light system incorporates a slide ready light that is activated by the lab technician. This immediately alerts the Mohs surgeon in the exam room and/or office, when an active patient slide is ready to be evaluated. This enhances surgeon/tech communication, increases patient flow efficiency and most importantly improves the overall patient experience.
